Lebanon Cabinet approves first offshore licensing round

BEIRUT -- Lebanon authorized its first offshore oil and natural gas licensing round at a cabinet meeting as the nation sought to catch up with neighbors Israel and Cyprus in developing fuel reserves.

The qualifying round for companies interested in participating will start Feb. 1, Minister of Social Affairs Wael Bou Faour said at a press conference in the capital Beirut. A list of qualified explorers will be issued by March 31 and they can place bids starting May 2, he said.

Exploration will proceed in waters close to those of Israel and Cyprus, where Noble Energy Inc. (NBL) found gas. The Leviathan field, discovered in 2010 in Israel’s deep waters, was the world’s largest find of its kind in a decade.
