Uzi Landau (Minister for National Infrastructure) has given the order to develop the Noa offshore gas field.
This field's development was held up as it was feared that part of the field straddles or overlaps the offshore territories that we gave away to the Arabs in Gaza (are they part of the PA, or are they not?).
Noble Energy studied the fields and determined in the end that the field doesn't spill over.
The field will be tapped for short term/immediate emergency use as Egyptian supplied gas has become unreliable.
There is an estimated 1.2 Billion cubic meters of gas in this field.
There's nothing like self-sufficiency.
