Israel Reaches Out to US for Oil and Gas Development

OilPrice.com -- Israel Natural Gas Lines' is energetically courting US majors to develop its oil and gas industry, inviting firms specializing in exploration, production, pipeline construction, logistical services, workforce training and other related subsectors to join in the bonanza.

This week, Israel announced that construction has begun on a submerged turret loading buoy linking LNG imports to the country’s gas transmission system as the country seeks to become and LNG exporter.

According to the US Geological Survey, the Levant Basin Province in the Eastern Mediterranean holds a mean recoverable reserve of 122 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of natural gas and 1.7 billion barrels of oil. The province straddles the maritime boundaries of Cyprus, Gaza Strip, Israel, Lebanon and Syria.

Hope US companies will help. It's obvious the Obama administration does not have Israel's back.

Everyone wants a slice of the energy pie.

More Natural Gas in Isreal and other countries may help keep the price lower here.

We need to assist Israel if we can. They are a very good friend to the US. Lord knows the US needs all we can get. The US has looked very weak for the past three years.

I hope the Israeli people have better luck dealing with Big Oil than the rest of us here in the U.S.

Big Oil will make sure to give them a good deal, right?

I saw news about India two days back and now Israel. What's going on? We need our own natural resources to be used by us. No to foreign countries looking for our resources.
