Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce has called on energy firms in the north east to take part in its first trade mission to Israel.

The UK Trade & Investment (UKTI)-sponsored event will allow delegates to participate in the country’s first international oil and gas conference and exhibition, Universal Oil & Gas (UOG), in November this year.

The conference follows a number of recent major discoveries offshore and onshore Israel, most significantly in the Tamar and Leviathan fields, which are estimated to hold 29trillion cubic feet of gas between them.

The mission will enable delegates to network with block-license holders, government officials, international experts and senior executives in the Israeli oil and gas industry, the chamber said in a statement.

“The Chamber’s international trade department is proudly leading the way once again to an upcoming and exciting energy market,” said Julien Massé, international trade team leader for Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce.

“Our trade missions are tailored to help UK SMEs learn about the market and prepare their future entry. Combining our mission schedule with the Universal Oil & Gas Dead Sea 2014 Conference and Exhibition is the ideal platform for participants and will provide them with a comprehensive business trip”.

The UOG conference will take place 18-20 November at the David Dead Sea Resort Hotel.
