2012. Here’s what Alen Leveric, Deputy Minister of Economy said about the
Balkans Oil & Gas Summit;
“Since 2012, we had the unique
opportunity to annually report and promote all development stages of one of the
most important Croatian strategic projects – exploration and exploitation of
hydrocarbons (onshore and offshore).
In June 2015, Croatian government
published that three companies (Vermilion Zagreb Exploration, INA and Oando
PLC) will share six licences to explore for oil and gas in Croatia’s northern
Drava river basin and in the east of the country.
In January 2015, Croatia awarded 10
offshore oil and gas exploration licences for drilling in the Adriatic. Seven
licences went to a consortium of Marathon Oil and OMV, two to INA and one to a
consortium of ENI and Medoilgas.
With this in mind, Croatia is
definitely on their way of becoming an energy leader in the south-eastern
Europe.” Alen Leveric, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Economy, Croatia
