Dr. Theodore Tsakiris, ELIAMEP’s energy policy expert, participated as speaker and panellist in a prominent international oil & gas conference held between 24-26 September in Larnaca Cyprus. The three day EuroMed 2012 Exploration and Production (E&P) Summit featured Cyprus’ top decision makers, investors and administrators from almost two dozen countries around the Mediterranean. The presentation of Dr. Tsakiris focused on the differences and similarities in EU Energy Policy vis-à-vis the so-called Southern Corridor Strategy and the prospective emergence of an East Med Gas Corridor –built around Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone- as well as the comparative impact of both “Corridors” on regional geopolitics and the EU import diversification strategy.
