GIOGIE provides a central meeting place for the local and regional oil and gas community to discuss the latest developments on projects, policies and inward investments in Georgia’s oil, gas and energy industry.
Georgia’s potential as a hydrocarbon producer could significantly increase as more international companies planning to invest in the domestic market. Jindal Petroleum plans to invest $100m after finding oil and MND plans to invest €77.4m if production meets expectations. Tethys Petroleum estimates there are could be an ‘unrisk recoverable resources of approximately 3 billion barrels of oil’.
Deputy of Head of Natural Resources at the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Georgia, Giorgi Tatishvili has stated that $68.3 million has been invested in the energy sector, and Georgia Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Kakha Kaladze has also pledged that $84 million from the state coffers will support oil and gas exploration.
Such commitments, and the fact that the country will complete 2D and 3D seismics surveys on 2,000 km of onshore terrain by 2016 means that there could be an abundance of opportunities for companies seeking to expand their business.
