Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Israel’s natural gas reserves are worth $100-130 billion, in non-capitalized values and were discovered in 2009. This valuation is the basis for the sovereign fund for oil and gas royalties that will be set up.
Gas discoveries in Israeli waters could be double the known discoveries to date. (These discoveries include Tamar and Leviathan – A.B.). Currently, Israel depends on coal and gas to fuel its energy needs. In Israel there are plans to reduce dependence on coal from 60 percent of its energy set-up, while increasing natural gas from 30 percent to 40-45 percent. The plan is to increase alternative energy use to 10 percent by 2020. The discovery of the natural gas field 90 km. offshore from Haifa, known as Tamar, was made by a US-Israel consortium including the Delek Group, through its subsidiaries Delek Drilling and Avner Oil Exploration, Isramco Negev 2, Dor Gas Exploration and US oil operator Noble Energy Inc.
