09:00 Minnows: Independents

14:30 National Oil Companies: Governments State oil players have dominant positions in many countries, yet opportunities have expanded in deals, bid rounds and acreage opened in frontier zones and new basins – in Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Chad, and Sudan. However, the Arab Spring has had unintended consequences, and in the Middle East states – as well as the Eastern Mediterranean – emerging competitors have come to the fore, game changers worldwide have forced re-thinking, and competition has accentuated.

The Maghreb/MidEast world is hydrocarbon-rich, with strong State oil players, aligned in geopolitics to world oil markets and via strategy to Europe’s gas-LNG needs, with much unexplored terrain, new oil-gas potential, which minnows and Independents have made a target zone for future opportunity.

Minnows: Small Independents Independents “Born In Mena” Who’s Who: Linkages, Relationships Local Companies: Emergence Corporate Strategies: Entry, Partners

Worldwide Independents: 60+ Companies Corporate Players: Strategies & Portfolio Acreage, Assets, Deals, Ventures

10:45 Morning Break 11:15 Super-Independents: Super/Majors Competition in the Middle East and North Africa remains fierce, despite risks, while crude prices and the global economic crisis has forced readjustments and changes in regimes. Yet energy investment interest remains strong, and the large firms - from Super-Independents to Super-Majors and National Oil Companies from overseas - have added to in-place portfolio in both the wider Middle East and in North African oil/gas and LNG ventures.

Super Independents Large Players: ENI, ConocoPhillips, Repsol Top 33 Super Independents: Oil/Gas Players Corporate Profiles, Strategies, Core Assets New Ventures, Exploration Portfolio
