The purpose of this study is to examine the potential growth in the gas sector of an emerging market as the region around Mediterranean Sea. A series of factors that affect the demand and supply side are analyzed, such as energy consumption per capita, GDP, production and consumption of natural gas. The discovery of sizable gas resources in the Levant Basin, a geological structure that straddles the territorial waters of Cyprus and Israel is capable of changing balances in East Mediterranean region and Europe through diversification of supply sources and security of supply. The majority of these countries are net energy importers, but now they are faced with the prospect of long-term energy self-sufficiency. After all, this study examines the challenges and opportunities that have been given rise to by these discoveries, in comparison with their impact in the environment.
