Rome, at the centre of the Mediterranean, is probably the best location to extend the so-called “LNG revolution” from Northern Europe and North America to Southern Europe and the Mediterranean coasts of the Middle East and Africa.
The topics discussed was, among the others: the development of logistics and transport capacity of small quantities of LNG to supply coastal storage, filling stations, factories and off-grid facilities. The state of implementation of the European Directive 93/2013 for the realization of filling stations for alternative fuels to oil.
The program of the 3rd International LNG Conference was also enriched by a Ministerial roundtable where representatives from Energy Ministries of Mediterranean Countries and Mediterranean Organizations debated about the security of Mediterranean energy supplies and the environmental protection of the Mediterranean Sea, focusing on the Mediterranean energy dialogue and the LNG option for secure-affordable supplies and clean Mediterranean seas.
