Delek-Noble announced that Israel has discovered 1.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. This is enough to supply the state of Israel with decades of energy.
This discovery could very well transform Israel's economy!
Tamar is the name of the well where the discovery was made. Tamar lies about 80 miles north-northwest of the 1999-2000 Mari-B, Noa, and Nir gas discoveries 15-23 miles off Ashkelon. It is also about 40 miles southeast of Israel's maritime border with Cyprus.
Now Russia has a motivation for invading Israel!
Ezekiel wrote and prophesied, "A long time from now you will be called into action. You and your hordes will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud. At that time evil thoughts will come to your mind, and you will think an evil thought. You will say, 'I will go up to the land to take a spoil.'"(See Ez. 38).
Of course, Lebanon is claiming that the gas is hers. According to the Arabs, nothing can ever belong to Israel---even The Land.
The final days are getting closer!
Israel Discovers Natural Gas!
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The Houston-based Noble Energy company, drilling for Israel’s Delek fuel company, announced that it has discovered a huge deposit of natural gas under the Mediterranean Sea near Haifa.
Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) said that the find was of “historic proportions,” and that it could change the face of Israel’s economy.
Eighty-seven billion cubic meters, or nearly 3.1 trillion cubic feet, of high-quality gas are estimated to be in three deposits in the Tamar Drilling site, which is named for Delek owner Yitzchak Teshuva’s granddaughter. Teshuva said that the find marks a “historic milestone and a great holiday for Israel,” and that he has no doubt it will “supply Israel’s energy needs for many decades to come.”
