MEOG - Middle East Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas

Looking for more MEOG articles? Or would you like to find out more about the publication? Keep reading.


With around 40% of the world’s oil supply coming from the Persian Gulf, in addition to exploration and production (E&P), MEOG’s coverage includes policy and transport issues which can cause price spikes in the global hydrocarbon markets.

MEOG offers insight into the latest developments in the oil and gas sectors of Bahrain, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, the UAE and Yemen. While much of the region has been extensively explored, there remain ‘frontier’ areas of E&P. Oil shale efforts in Jordan could provide vast resources through the greater cost effectiveness of new technologies. To the north-west, Beirut has grown increasingly impatient to follow the major gas discovery trend in the Eastern Med. and Lebanon’s first offshore bid round is likely to kick off drilling campaigns in the medium term.

MEOG is fully digital publication and can be read via PDF, PageSuite or via our NewsBase App.
