DISCUSSION: COULD IT BE TOO LATE FOR PURSUING OFFSHORE DISCOVERIES FOR DEVELOPMENT?
On one hand, the development of large-scale offshore projects in the Black Sea will undoubtedly lead to Romania’s sustainable economic growth and significantly contribute to its energy security. On the other hand, energy transition is here: top institutional investors are planning to divest from fossil fuels and shareholders of all major oil and gas companies are increasing pressure for further climate action.
