SUT-US August Virtual Networking Event & Wine Tasting
Get your wine glass ready for the upcoming SUT-US Virtual Networking Event & Wine Tasting on August 6th from 5pm-7pm.

Steve Johnson, Chevron Retired and SUT Volunteer, will lead a discussion into an overview of the subsea gas field development opportunities in the Eastern Mediterranean. He will start with a review of the current blocks and known fields, then discuss export opportunities, both locally and into Europe. He will then discuss subsea tie-back opportunities, illustrating how all the Eastern Mediterranean could be developed from beach using the latest  subsea technology. Finally, he will introduce the local geo-political tensions in the region.

The discussion will be followed by a Wine Tasting by Christopher Curran, Independent Consultant, SUT Volunteer, and Wine Enthusiast. Order your wine tasting sampler by July 27th, and these will be delivered to your home before the networking event. Lone Star Wine will donate 10% from the commission on sales from the wine tasting to SUT-US. Details for wine sampler purchase can be found below.
