Anna Pollatou, Kefalonian gymnastic gold medal winner at the 1999 World Champioships at Osaka, Japan and bronze medal winner at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, was killed in a car crash on the Patras - Pyrgos road near Kyllini yesterday. A big loss to her family, friends and Kefalonia.

In a December 2010 Balkanalysis.com article that was widely read by energy professionals worldwide, a glimpse into what lays ahead in terms of potential hydrocarbon explorations in the country was offered. The article concluded by noting that:

“certainly, in the financially dire straits that the Greek economy finds itself nowadays, the energy sector in the country, and specifically hydrocarbons research, may well provide an exciting source of investment activity, since it may provide a great boost for the troubled Greek economy.”

It seems that after almost four years, the exploration and research projects in that energy sector are about to become a reality, clearly validating both the article and the necessities for such actions. More specifically, the Greek energy ministry has recently announced that 10 ‘sea blocks’ are about to be handed out in a licensing round to prospective investors in July 2014. The extracted hydrocarbons from these blocks can potentially deliver to $150 billion into the Greek state’s coffers.
