The U.S. Department of Commerce invites you to participate in a “Offshore Gas Opportunities in Israel” webinar. Since June 1999, major offshore gas discoveries offer to dramatically transform Israel's energy economy. The Noa and MaryB fields with approximately 1.5 Tcf were discovered by the Yam Tethis group (comprising the Avner Oil, Delek Drilling, and Noble Affiliates' Samedan subsidiary), and commercial gas production began at in 2004. Most of the gas is currently used by the Israel Electric Company to operate power plants converted from fuel oil to natural gas utilization. Following these initial discoveries, natural gas exploration efforts began to accelerate. Local companies are eager to team up with U.S. companies to build the support base allowing the foreign companies to drill for gas. Opportunities exist for U.S. service companies providing logistical support to the offshore industry, for manufacturers of ships to service offshore rigs as well as technical training services are required to educate the local workforce. This webinar will give companies a more complete and up-to-date description of the offshore gas opportunities in Israel in addition the export assistance provided by the U.S. Commercial Service.
