By OGJ editors

Noble Energy Inc. said its Tanin gas discovery on the Alon A license offshore Israel contains a gross resource of .9-1.4 tcf of gas and derisks other prospects nearby.

The company’s latest Levant basin discovery went to a total depth of 18,212 ft and cut 130 ft of gross gas pay in high-quality Lower Miocene sands, Noble Energy said.

Tanin, in 5,100 ft of water 13 miles northwest of Tamar gas field, is the sixth consecutive discovery for Noble Energy and its partners in the basin. The six discoveries are Tamar, Dalit, Leviathan, Dolphin, Cyprus Block 12, and Tanin.

Four of the discoveries have estimated gross mean resource sizes above 1 tcf. Including Tanin, total discovered gross mean resources in the basin are now estimated to be 35 tcf.

Noble Energy is the operator of Alon A with a 47.06% interest. Avner Oil and Delek Drilling each have 26.47% interest.
