Tag Oil's tight oil exploration campaign in the East Coast Basin could be a good judge of New Zealand's unconventional potential.

BMI View: Expanding its LNG regasification capacity would not only help Greece diversify its sources of gas suppliers to meet consumption needs, it could also utilise its good geographical location to support its ambition of being the regional gas hub.
