The partners developing the Leviathan natural gas field submitted their detailed development plan to the government on Thursday.
Development of the Leviathan natural gas field is being led by Texas-based Noble Energy, Israel’s Delek Group (through its units Delek Drilling and Avner Oil and Gas) as well as Ratio Oil and Exploration.
According to the statement released by Delek, the plan calls for eight production wells to be built with two pipelines. Each pipeline has a 12 BCM capacity, with one leading to Israel for domestic and export use, while the second one will be solely for gas exportation.
The wells will be able to produce an estimated 21 billion cubic meters of gas annually.
