A meeting of the Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG) took place at the premises of Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, on November 4, 2014.

The day of informal, interdisciplinary discussions began with the presentation "Farmout Agreements in Upstream Oil and Gas Contracts". The presentation, delivered by PhD candidate Catalin Stanecu of the CEU's Legal Studies Department, provided an overview of petroleum concession agreements and contracts in Romania.

Nolan Theisen of LOCSEE partner the Regional Centre for Energy Policy Research (REKK) at Corvinus University, Budapest, then spoke on the topic of gas storage in Europe as a flexible mechanism. His presentation covered European markets, the main factors affecting the gas storage business, and current challenges related to gas storage in Europe.

A representative from LOCSEE project partner the Regional Environmental Center (REC) briefly introduced the LOCSEE project's outputs. These include the document The economic impact of the 2030 EU climate policy goals on Hungary, produced by REKK. The document will be presented for discussion at the second Hungarian national stakeholder meeting, which will take place in Budapest on November 26. The REC invited members of the EPRG to attend the event, recognising the valuable input that can be provided by the group's academics, researchers and experts from the fields of energy, trade, law and EU policy.
