Round Tables on Relevant Policy Issues in Petroleum Sector

the Lebanese Oil & Gas Initiative (LOGI) organized its fifth two-day round table in continuation to their effort in enhancing transparency and public advocacy for the Oil and Gas sector in Lebanon.

Shortly after the Lebanese Parliament has adopted the Oil and Gas Transparency law, panel discussions on relevant policy issues in the Petroleum sector were launched to emphasize on the importance of round tables in influencing decision makers in the concerned sector. Local and foreign speakers led the discussions over two days and answered the questions and concerns of civil society attendees, who in turn found the discussions fruitful and highly informative as they tackled the following topics: subcontracting process, stakeholder consultations, pre-source curse, onshore law and transparency. The Lebanese Petroleum Administration was represented by its chairman Walid Nasr who praised the efforts of civil society to follow and contribute in having a healthy administration of the sector. The panels consisted of advisors, directors, experts as well as former and current parliament members who have all agreed that civil society is an essential contributor in decision making, assessment, legislation and supervision of the sector.
