Zion Oil Releases New Exploration Map

April 9, 2011 by  

Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. released an updated map of it’s current and applied for exploration area. Updates include splitting Zion’s former ‘Issachar-Zebulun’ permit area into two new (applied for) areas – the ‘Zebulun Permit’ and the ‘Jordan Valley’ license. Surprisingly, Zion has also applied for an exploration license near the Dead Sea in the same area where Ginko/Lapidoth discovered oil in 2006.

According to Israel’s Petroleum Law, an exploration permit cannot exceed 18 months and allows the permit holder to conduct preliminary investigations, but not drill in the permit area. An exploration license is granted for three years and can be extended another four years. Licensees are required to drill test wells in the license area. An exploration license may not exceed 400,000 dunams (approximately 100,000 acres) in area.

    The US gave Brazil $10 billion US Dollars to drill 0ff shore The price to work With the US is much to high…Isreal realy has to step up exploriation and production to help save Isreal and the world. Massive deeposits of oil lay under the Levatran Gas fields, and under the Dead Sea. “Fact” With all the gas and oil in Isreal, The best friend of Isreal, The US is not a friend any more, but an enemy.

    I wish ISRAEL the best for SUCCESS in becoming a world leader in the oil industry.

    Do you have the name of the Canadian Co. that will be doing the research drilling for you??

    As someone said recently, “DRILL BABY DRILL”. I am sure in my heart ISRAEL is going to find the promised OIL. You will become DEPENDENT FREE and be able to offer friendly Nations some of what you produce.

    Another of God’s prophecies fulfilled in MY lifetime: Deut. 33:19 (of Zebulun/Issachar)…” for they shall suck the abundance of the seas and draw out the hidden wealth of the sand. ” (NEB.) Isaiah 48:3 “Long ago I announced what would first happen, I revealed it with my own mouth; … I acted and it came about.” (NEB)

    May God richly Bless you-Zion Oil. Drill on.
    My best guess without the use of a 30 watt ELF ground penetrating radar is to Drill around the north west quadrant of the Zebulun Permit zone. Your Biblical recount of Deuteronomy 33:24 is correct. Although based on Biblical Archeology, isn’t the Asher tribal area along the West Zebulun boundary? Have a look. My guess is pay dirt is over there.

    God Bless and God Speed!
