The Minister of Energy and Water announced on 8 April 2014 that the date to submit the bids pertaining to Lebanon’s First Offshore Licensing Round has been extended from 10 April 2014 to 14 August 2014.
This extension in the period is due to the delay in the issuance of the Decrees related to the Delineation of the Offshore Blocks and the model Exploration and Production Agreement by the Lebanese Cabinet.
Out of the ten blocks of the Lebanese offshore, the following five blocks - Blocks 1, 4, 5, 6 and 9 - are open for bidding within the First Licensing Round, with the possibility of opening additional blocks for bidding after the Cabinet session that will be convened to ratify the two decrees mentioned above.
