The 4th Energean Conference in Crete constitutes the appropriate context for activating alliances between the Regional Governors where hydrocarbons will play an important role due to the Greek EEZ.
Therefore Regional Crete gives a hand to Regional Peloponnese since its aware that there will be a field of cooperation due to the marine regions West of Crete and South West of Crete as well, where we will have contracts with the Exxon Mobil, Total and the Hellenic Petroleum Consortium which will be ratified by the Greek Parliament. any time now.
It is therefore important to in actual fact see these alliances take pace, especially in these two regions which have been informed by experts in regards to their energean future.
This doesn’t merely concern licenses but in fact projects under the Hydrocarbon Act 2289/1995 and Amendment 4001/2011.
The jurisdiction of the regions are quite clear with this legislation, but the alliances themselves are also important at a strategic level, as they will have political content, collaborative know-how, and a common vision at a national level.
In this manner, the two regions can put across a tangible example of cooperation upon an issue which is so strategic for the entire Greece, and which is fact hyperpartisanly at that.
