Our Regional Network promotes the collaboration with key stakeholders in the countries of the region as well as international experts and professional associations in the key area of safety and environmental protection of offshore oil and gas operations. The area of safety and environmental protection is a significant example where collaboration among neighboring countries is essential in order to ensure safety and protect the environment through joint proactive actions and plans as well as joint reactive operations which aim to limit the probability of accidental and potentially catastrophic events occurring or mitigating the impact of such events. This is of particular importance in an area like the Eastern Mediterranean Sea which is an essential component of the economic prosperity of the countries of the region through tourism and commerce.
