Minister Giorgios Lakkotrypis was in Houston on Tuesday to attend a presentation by Noble Energy regarding the US company’s vision for the Aphrodite field in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
Lakkotrypis mentioned from Houston, where he went to meet Noble officials at a time when an agreement on how Cypriot natural gas will fit in the larger scheme of things is absolutely critical for Cyprus and the region.
Noble Energy is a global independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company. It has a major stake in the Aphrodite field, which means its strategic plans will have a significant impact for Cyprus on setting an agenda in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Lakkotrypis is believed to have made contacts on issues regarding field development, infrastructure, marketing, and sales.
