The powers of EDEY, the Greek Hydrocarbon Management Company, have been expanded to cover a range of areas following a legislative revision made by the government.

EDEY has authority over matters such as management, control and monitoring of all relevant contracts that have been established in the past by the Greek State on behalf of third parties; exploration and evaluation of the country’s hydrocarbon potential, as well as assignment planning and supervision of exploration and evaluation of project potential.

EDEY also oversees applications for participation in tenders, in accordance with relevant provisions of existing law.

The company’s equity capital has been set at one million euros, paid by the Greek State in three equal installments, annually.

In addition, earnings resulting from the management of the Greek State’s rights and responsibilities regarding the development and operation of offshore wind farms will be regarded as income for the company.
