JERUSALEM Nov 26 An exploration group drilling
off Israel's Mediterranean shore said on Tuesday they found
significant signs of a new natural gas deposit near to where
huge reserves have been discovered in recent years.
Delek Drilling said the signs of natural gas were
found at the Tamar Southwest field, where earlier estimates said
there could be 20 billion cubic meters of gas.
The site is near the Tamar field, discovered by Texas-based
Noble Energy in 2009 to hold an estimated 10 trillion
cubic feet of gas.
Other partners in the latest drilling finds are Isramco
Negev 2, Avner Oil Exploration and Dor Gas
