UOG 2014 will welcome delegations from Texas, Aberdeen, Denmark, Russia as well as a number of other oil hubs in a unique offering at the Dead Sea location in Israel.

Delegates at UOG 2014 will have the opportunity to investigate game-changing onshore and offshore opportunities in the region and to network with block-license holders, international experts, government officials and senior executives in the Eastern-Mediterranean oil and gas industry.

“We are excited to bring together some of the global oil hubs to Israel for the first time to encourage participation in the region’s huge oil and gas opportunities,” says Joshua Beagelman, UOG 2014 CEO. “Delegates attending will have a unique chance to meet with government officials, local players as well international players looking to enter Israel’s emerging oil and gas market.”

Recent offshore discoveries, the production and further potential of natural gas and the onshore potential of oil shale reserves show that Israel is fast becoming a leading energy hub.
