Israeli energy stocks surged today (see http://www.oilinisrael.net/oil-in-israel-articles/israel-energy-stocks-surge-on-large-gas-find)based on Noble Energy’s announcement of a discovery off the Haifa Coast of over three trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

Noble Energy (NBL, NYSE) who announced the discovery and Zion Oil (ZN, AMEX), both public companies trading on American Markets, and both involved in Israeli energy exploration, should experience similar stock surges on Monday when US markets open.

    Looks like we’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out how Israel related oil and gas stocks on the US market do. American markets are closed today due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

    Zion Oil stock (ZN) has held up while almost all other stocks have been falling over past several months. Last week, my Zion Oil stock jumped from about $6.00/share to almost $10.00/share, and has been fluctuating in a new range mostly between $7.00/$9.00/share. It closed just above $7.00 last Friday.

    I believe that something extremely shocking is about to happen that will change everything, perhaps even early as tomorrow on scheduled Obama Inagruation.

    Blessings & Shalom!!

    Zion stock settles in higher each few days to a new high. This is due to increased news alerts on Zion in America. More and more are buying the stock causing the price to increase. Here are two questions:

    1. What date has been picked to put the drill to work?
    2. Once oil is found, will Zion be the stock of the future? The BP of Israel?

    Thanks for the compliment, but I disagree that the reason Zion stock is surging is because of increased news reports. Compared to the news and press releases during their public offering, Zion news has gone down some.
    Here are three reasons I know of why Zion stock has surged:
    1. The Haifa gas discovery is close by and proves massive hydrocarbons in the area.
    2. Zion has proven themselves to be a real company – not a fly by night. They do what they say they’re going to do.
    3. The announced subscription offer is a great deal – but only to those who already own Zion stock.
    Regarding your other two questions:
    1. According to inside buzz, ZIon should be turning the bit in the next month or so. They had a roadblock getting work permits for the AME (Turkish) crew, but that block is supposed to be unclogged now.
    2. Will Zion be the next BP? Wishful thinking. Zion’s mission is to produce oil and gas in Israel, period. But if you want to know what a major discovery does for an oil company, keep you eyes on Noble. The current rise in Zion stock is peanuts compared to what it will do after a major discovery.

    How has this panned out? Their stock hasn’t changed much since it shot up immediately after this article came out. Has the gas field materialized? When will it come on stream? It’s always interesting to see how smaller Oil Gas Stocks like this operate.

    I am very interested in buying oil and gas stocks. Please keep me informed if
    Noble has made a real discovery.

    Our Organization is congo petroleum Dev. we’re registered in Massachusetts
    and in drc where the oil and gas concession is located. we have more than
    250kms land already exploration done, we have a lot of oil and gas, we do have
    geological reports of the site, also the protocol d’accords is ready to be signed
    whenever the partner is ready. we;re looking for a partner for joint venture.
    we have a business plan if you’re interested we will then send you a copy.

    Thank you for your time.

    P,S. we have onshore and offshore drilling.

    I do believe that the big can also help the small to grow. Our organization has
    power to have more than what we have now as far oil and gas is concerned in
    DRC, we can also do the forest, diamond etc. We have good relation with the
    DRC Government and originally I’m from DRC before being American citizen.
    I believe you can do it, helping DRC’s people, get them to work etc, even more
    than that.
    Please let me know what you think about this project.
    God bless you and bless all of us.

    Thanks a lot for your time

    I’m aware of development efforts in the Congo. Our prayers are with your nation and your people for peace and prosperity. This website is dedicated to the exploration for and discovery of oil and gas in Israel, so maybe not the best platform for your mission.

    I would like to buy some inexpensive oil stock in Israel. Please tell me how to do it for a reputable company
