Liquified Natural Gas Flow From Offshore Israel Begins Today

January 25, 2013 by  

The Jerusalem Post wrote in an article yesterday that an offshore transmission buoy would begin operating today, supplying liquefied natural gas to Israel. Israel’s offshore Tamar gas field won’t begin production until April, but the offshore buoy is capable of supplying 4 -5 million cubic meters per day until Tamar’s production comes online. The Israeli government estimates that this new supply channel of natural gas will save the their economy 500 million NIS ($135 million) in just the first few weeks of operation, and billions in the next few years. Energy transferred from the new natural gas supply will generate 3,000 to 4,000 megawatts per hour (30,000 – 40,000 homes). This new supply is a milestone in Israel’s 80/20 goal, to have 80% of the country’s electrical energy needs supplied by natural gas. When Israel’s recent natural gas discoveries come into production they will be capable of supplying 100% of their natural gas needs without imports and export natural gas to other markets.

    Thank you so much for the update. I pray daily for you and the work that is involved in the drilling. “In his time it will flow”, I know.. It is a blessing that the gas is flowing today, Thank you Father! God bless all, and my Jewish folks.

    Hi Pastor,
    You may mean that you’re interested in buying stock from Zion Oil & Gas or another company we report about. is not officially associated with any of the exploration companies in Israel. We just let you know what’s happening.
    Thanks for reading.

    Praise Jesus! I’m so very happy that natural gas has been discovered and flowing into Jewish and Jewish Christian’s homes. I’m sure the Almighty will be true to His word as He always is. One day, oil will also flow and make Israel dependent on only God’s Word and earth’s provision. Since He created her, He knows!
    I’m sorry that well #3 didn’t pan out, but that’s the challenge, isn’t it? Faithfully search and find, never give up and continue to believe.
    I’ll continue to pray and support Israel any way I can.
    Thank you,
