Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) has updated the status of its deepwater Tamar gas development in the Levantine basin offshore Israel.

The Tamar jacket and topside facilities were installed in December and commissioning operations are under way. Production is expected to start in April and will be combined with output from the nearshore Mari-B platform production to meet Israel’s growing domestic demand. 

Noble continues appraisal drilling of the deepwater Leviathan discovery with the Leviathan 4 well.

Charles D. Davidson, Noble Energy’s chairman and CEO, said: “To support future growth, we intend to sanction this year another wave of major projects that will likely include a Phase 2 of Tamar in Israel and a Phase 1 of Leviathan also in Israel.”
