The government of Ukraine recently announced an extensive international oil & gas licencing round, releasing 30 onshore hydrocarbon blocks to be sold via online auction. The first round of 10 blocks was announced in early December and the auction takes place on 6th March.

The speaker panel will feature key Ukrainian officials, representatives of leading state-owned and private energy companies, present and potential strategic investors and leading international energy experts and commentators. Attendees will have all their questions answered about the licencing round, including detailed information about the blocks on offer and how to participate in the auctions.
