The Potential Contribution of Natural Gas to East Mediterranean Economy

Executive Summary

Energy has shaped the modern world as we know it. The transition from the use of heavily polluting fuels to more environmentally friendly sources of energy is at the core of implemented policies worldwide.

The discoveries of recoverable gas reserves in the Zohr field in Egypt, Leviathan in Israel, and Aphrodite in Cyprus brought the region in the spotlight of international exploration and production activities. This report is demonstrating the contribution of these discoveries in the economies of the corresponding countries and examines the potential impact that more natural gas discoveries will have in the economies of Egypt, Israel, Cyprus as well as in Greece and Lebanon...

The Excise Duty on Natural Gas when used as Feedstock

Natural gas is the fastest growing form of primary energy worldwide, given its advantages compared to other forms of energy and its pivotal contribution to the direction of sustainable development. It is an essential element for the promotion of the European Energy Policy and at the same time, the bridge for the transition from conventional to renewable energy forms. Additionally natural gas is the most efficient and sustainable raw material for ammonia/ fertilizers production.

A considerable positive effect on GDP growth derives from the particular abolishment of the excise duty on natural gas when used as feedstock. The precise increase attributable to the growth in domestic demand is projected to eventually result in a GDP rise of € 754 million. An additional positive feature of the complete abolition in natural gas would be towards the impact on employment, which is estimated to increase by a total number of 12.500 jobs. In conclusion, nowadays that industrial production seems to progressively recover, the aim should be towards promoting and encouraging production, rather than burden it with taxes and levies that cannot be covered anymore.
