Zion AME Rig Leaves Turkey

April 16, 2009 by  

The 2,000 horsepower Aladdin Middle East drilling rig contracted by
Zion Oil & Gas to drill the Ma’anit Rehoboth #2 well in northern
Israel was loaded on the the freighter “Umiavut” yesterday at the
Turkish port of Iskenderun.

Moving the rig from Turkey to Israel is no small chore.
Transporting the Zion rig overland requires 80 truckloads of
equipment. That’s 80 trucks loaded in Ankara (inland Turkey) and
transported to the dock at Iskenderun. 80 trucks unloaded and put
aboard ship. 80 trucks unloaded at Haifa, Israel and transported to
Zion’s Ma’anit Rehoboth site. 80 trucks unloaded and set up at the
well site. Whew!

Here’s the estimated time lapse: Transit time via ship from Turkey
to the port of Haifa in Israel is four days. Combined transit and
setup time from the port of Haifa to the well site at Ma’anit is
nine days. Today is April 16. If all goes well, by April 30 (don’t
count Shabbat on the 25th) we may be hearing exciting news from
Israel!

    Cathy,

    Zion Oil & Gas is a publicly traded company on the AMEX stock exchange under the ticker symbol ZN. Anyone can buy Zion Oil & Gas Stock by contacting their broker. If you don’t have or know a stock broker any online trading service (Scottrade, E*trade, Ameritrade, etc.) can buy the stock for you for a small fee.
    Zion closed at $8.51 yesterday, April 16. In light of Zion’s upcoming rights offering ( http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Zion-Oil-Announces-Rights-bw-14198866.html) that’s a bargain.

    I was at a meeting in St. Louis in the 1980s. The main speaker was Jim Spillman. He reported at this time that he thought there was oil exactly where you are drilling. God is faithful to perform His WORD. We are going to invest in the stock and believe GOD for GREAT BLESSING IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISION AND YOUR OBEDIANCE TO FULFILL THE VISION. PHILLIPIANS 4:19 IS YOURS FOR THIS PROJECT!! I ALSO SPEAK PSALMS 91 OVER YOU AND YOUR COMPANY : SHALOM R.B.
