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;
– Investment needs and Financing of infrastructure;
– Strategy and International Cooperation.

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.

Six Task Forces are also active:
– Gas Platform;
– Regional Electricity Market Platform;
– Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Platform;
– Mediterranean Energy Perspectives-MEP;
– OME annual Conference;
– Covid-19.
