Is Israel the Next Middle East Energy Powerhouse?
Jan 22 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Sunday, January 22nd 9:30-11:00 AM 

Is Israel the Next Middle East Energy Powerhouse?  

Presented by the Israel Action Committee  

*This event will be held virtually over zoom.  

Moses dragged us for 40 years through the desert to bring us to the one place in the Middle East where there was no oil– Golda Meir. 

NewMed Energy — Israel's leading energy partnership in the exploration and sale of natural gas—is changing the narrative.  

NewMed Energy's natural gas discovery has altered the course of history and fostered unprecedented agreements with Egypt, Jordan, and the UAE. NewMed Energy has been a critical partner in almost every gas discovery made in the last thirty years. 

NewMed Energy holds 45.34% of the Leviathan Reservoir, the largest gas reservoir in the Mediterranean. The Leviathan gas production serves as a critical energy source for the State of Israel and the region's countries. NewMed Energy has helped accelerate the recent maritime border deal with Lebanon and its evolving relations with Turkey and Europe as Israel seeks to supply Europe's natural gas needs considering the Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

Please join us for a presentation with NewMed Energy CEO Yossi Abu as we explore the potential of Israel as an energy powerhouse and how it's reshaping political and economic ties within the region. 

Registration is required. A zoom link will be sent out prior to the event.
