The caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati and Energy and Water Minister Walid Fayad met with Patrick Pouyanné, the Chairman and CEO of the French company TotalEnergies.
  
The meeting focused on the periodic report prepared by TotalEnergies regarding drilling and exploration for gas and oil in Lebanese territorial waters, including the possibility of resuming drilling activities at a second site in Block 9.
