It faces maritime border disputes, regional rivals and is surrounded by a country engulfed in civil war. Yet the main challenge to Lebanon’s potential gas sector is not geopolitics, according to analysts, but a lack of political consensus.   The tiny Mediterranean country could have almost 100tn cubic feet (tcf) of offshore gas reserves, according to some officials.
