Romania’s general director oil & gas advisor of the Ministry of Energy, Corneliu Condrea, will be attending the Balkans Oil & Gas 2015 Summit as a speaker, according to the 2-day Summit agenda.


Romania’s energy resources have been always very attractive to international oil and gas companies with the Black Sea being in the spotlight. The Balkans Oil & Gas Summit is a landmark regional meeting that takes place since 2012 and last year only it gathered 300 delegates, with 70 oil and gas companies being in attendance.
