Israeli Natural Gas Field is Significant Find

12/29/2010

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A natural gas field discovered in Israel's territorial waters contains an esimated 16 trillion cubic feet of the natural resource.

Electrical log tests confirmed the size of the natural gas field, which was discovered in drilling earlier this year off the Mediterranean coast near Haifa and dubbed "Leviathan." Noble Energy Inc. announced the results of the tests on Wednesday.

Leviathan is almost double the size of the Tamar field, which was discovered off Israel’s Mediterranean coast in 2009.
