Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 28 September 2017 03:10

Production has resumed at the Tamar gas field offshore Israel after a crack was found in an emission pipe used to release natural gas and pressure, according to partner Delek Drilling.

Noble was performing upgrade and improvement as planned, when the crack was found in the pipe, which is used routinely and in emergencies. Production was stopped on 21 September.

Today (28 September), Delek says Noble has completed a repair of the fault and production has resumed. Noble is continuing to carry out other planned upgrade works, says Delek. 

The Tamar field is in License 309 in the Matan Block, about 90km west of Haifa in the Levantine Basin. 

Noble Energy Mediterranean is the operator of the Tamar project with 32.5% stake. Partners include:  Isramco Negev 2 (28.75%), Delek Drilling (22%), Tamar Petroleum( 9.25%), Dor Gas Exploration (4%), and Everest Infrastructures (3.5%).
