The 4th Black Sea Oil and Gas conference in 2016 was a great regional success! Benefiting from the support of the Ministries of Energy of Bulgaria and Romania, this two-day event provided the participants with concrete advice on the current commercial stage of the upstream and midstream projects in the region, interactive debates and roundtables with project owners, and in-depth analysis on funding opportunities, industry trends, oil and gas prices and technological needs.
