Israel’s Massive Gas Field To Start Producing On December 23
Israel’s biggest natural gas field, Leviathan, is expected to begin production on Monday, the Israeli energy ministry said on Thursday, after a Jerusalem court rescinded an injunction that it had granted two days earlier over emissions concerns.
A senior official at operator Noble Energy said at the beginning of December that Leviathan was set to begin gas supply to the local market within three weeks and to start exports to Egypt and Jordan shortly after that, in a major milestone for the energy landscape in Israel and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Leviathan—discovered in 2010—together with other fields discovered offshore Israel in the past decade such as Tamar, Karish, and Tanin, is expected to help Israel become energy independent.
Israel is set to soon begin natural gas exports to Egypt. The two countries, which mark this year 40 years since signing a peace treaty in 1979, have made meaningful advances in their natural gas industries in recent years and are competing to become Eastern Mediterranean’s next energy hub.
Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz signed earlier this week the necessary permits for exporting natural gas from Israel to Egypt.
“Israel, for the first time in its history, has become an energy exporter - this is the most significant economic cooperation between Israel and Egypt since the peace treaty between the two states was signed,” Steinitz said.
