Since 2010, the Eastern Mediterranean region has become a hotspot of international energy discussions due to a series of gas discoveries in the offshore of Israel, Cyprus and Egypt.
This book seeks to provide a comprehensive analysis of all these developments, with the ultimate aim of assessing the realistic implications of regional gas discoveries for both Eastern Mediterranean countries and the EU.
This book is the 3rd of the series Energy Scenarios and Policy (ESP) designed upon the analogue research programme of the Fondazione Ens Enrico Mattei (FEEM). This series aims to publish interdisciplinary, scientifically sound, prospective and policy-oriented energy research targeted at political and business decision makers.
