Lebanon Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Report-Stable Fiscal Regime Planned for Second Offshore Round

Press Release

The creation of Lebanon’s petroleum fiscal framework has been completed, at least for offshore Lebanon, over the course of the past ten years. As the country progresses to its second offshore round, it appears that the fiscal regime will remain relatively stable. However, new regulations are planned in the coming years, including those concerning onshore activities and the creation of a sovereign wealth fund (SWF). Potential policy risks for the sector may arise in the future if oil or gas discoveries are made, especially along the Israeli-Lebanese contested border. On top of this, at the regional level, in relation to petroleum activities, Lebanon appears presently quite isolated as for the current discussions among some European and Middle Eastern and North African countries in relation to future commercial deals and exporting routes for hydrocarbons.
