What is OME ?

Launched in 1988 and incorporated in 1991, OME is the Voice of the energy industry in the Mediterranean area; a Platform for energy dialogue, cooperation and best practices exchanges and a Think Tank of reference in the Euro-Mediterranean Region. The Association gathers leading Mediterranean energy companies and associated partners from sixteen countries.

OME's four committees are the following:
- Energy Transition, Sustainability and Climate Change;
- Hydrocarbons and Energy Security;
- Investments needs and Financing of infrastructure;
- Strategy and International Cooperation Committee.

Five Task Forces are also active:
- Gas Platform;
- Regional Electricity Market Platform;
- Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Platform;
- Mediterranean Energy Perspectives-MEP;
- OME annual Conference.

OME has, since its inception, pioneered the organization of cross cutting high-level conferences and workshops on various issues related to the energy sector in Mediterranean countries and continues to do so on a regular basis. These events offer opportunities to develop a shared vision among regional actors, policy makers and national authorities.
