​"Despite the extraordinary challenges currently facing Lebanon, with COVID-19 being only one of them, the virtual symposium gathers distinguished regional and international experts who will focus on the status and prospects of the emerging gas exploration business offshore Lebanon. Register, log in, learn and network.

“See” you all at the Symposium!"




With a uniquely compelling timing, this virtual symposium discussed the different phases and challenges related to exploration and development options in deep and ultra-deep water with a focus on exploration and early development phases. Attendees developed their knowledge in the subject through exchanging ideas and learning from other experts from different companies with experience in the Lebanese data or regional analogues. Results of the first well drilling and evaluation might possibly be known by then. In such a case, special focus will be given to this major milestone.


This must-attend event offered a virtual environment hosting a truly inclusive and engaging learning experience. By using the latest technology, SPE delivered a high-quality and topical agenda, while also keeping our community connected during this challenging time.

The new format provided a series of interactive technical sessions, collaborative experiences and live speaker Q&A.
