About Logi

The Lebanese Oil & Gas Initiative

LOGI’s objective is to develop a network of Lebanese experts in the global energy industry and provide them with a platform to educate Lebanese policy makers as well as Lebanese citizens on the key decisions facing the oil and gas industry.

It will focus on public awareness, policy development and advocacy, capacity building and technical assistance to help Lebanon maximize the economic and social benefits of its oil and gas wealth – and avoid the resource curse.

 

LOGI is an independent non-governmental organization based
in Beirut that promotes the transparent and sound
management of Lebanon’s oil and gas resources.

Mission

Help Lebanon maximize the economic and social
benefits of its oil and gas wealth
