Lebanon to begin gas exploration in late 2019

Gas production rises by 31% in three months 

Lebanon expects to start gas exploration by the end of 2019, through a consortium led by French oil giant, Total.

Second Vice-Governor of Lebanon’s Central Bank, Saad Andary, said at a conference that the exploration will take three to four years.

In May, Lebanese authorities approved an exploration plan submitted by a consortium of France’s Total, Italy’s Eni and Russia’s Novatek.
