Tamar gas production increases offshore Israel

Offshore staff

HOUSTONNoble Energy says its Israel’s natural gas sales volumes averaged 303 MMcf/d (8.6 MMcm/d) during 3Q 2015, an increase of 15% over the same period in 2014.

This was due to strong seasonal weather demand and good reservoir and facility performance. In August, gas production from the deepwater Tamar field averaged more than 1 bcf/d (28 MMcm/d).

The company and its partners remain in talks with regional customers over natural gas sales contracts for both Tamar and the undeveloped Leviathan field.

Noble adds that Israel’s government has approved a comprehensive regulatory framework for hydrocarbon development. Follow-up action is under way.
