Israel to expand Mediterranean gas exploration

TEL AVIV — Israel is moving ahead on its natural gas exploration project.


Prime contractor Noble Energy has awarded a $27 million contract to test wells and provide equipment for the Tamar gas field in the Mediterranean Sea. The winner, Britain's Expro, was assigned to provide advanced technology to expand operations at Tamar this May, Middle East Newsline reported.

"We are very excited about this project in terms of its size, but also in terms of its significance and long-term impact on the geo-political landscape of Israel," Keith Palmer, Expro's Europe regional director, said.

Tamar was one of at least two wells targeted for development by Nobel Energy in Israel. Officials said Israel could find sufficient gas reserves to make the Jewish state into an exporter.
