Noble Energy: Leviathan gas starts flowing to Israel, Jordan and Egypt
U.S. oil and gas company Noble Energy noted that the Leviathan field off Israel started first natural gas sales on December 31, 2019.
All four wells and both subsea flowlines are currently fully operational, with well productivities in line with or better than pre-production expectations.
Natural gas sales have been established to Israel, Jordan, and Egypt. Gas sales to Jordan began on January 1, with gas exports to Egypt beginning January 15, Noble Energy said.
Gas sales into Egypt are utilizing the EMG Pipeline as planned, with interconnects between the Israeli, Jordanian and Egyptian pipeline networks now fully operational.
Combined gross natural gas sales from the Leviathan and Tamar fields to date have averaged 1.5 billion cubic feet equivalent per day (Bcfe/d) in January, with peak days up to 1.7 Bcfe/d.
