Noble turns on Tamar taps

Offshore staff

TEL AVIV, Israel – First gas from the Tamar project offshore Israel has begun to flow, partners in the development announced.

Israel’s Delek Drilling and Avner Oil Exploration, which each hold a 15.625% stake in Tamar, said first gas from the 2009 discovery began flowing March 30, 2013, slightly sooner than the April startup operator Noble Energy had projected.

The Tamar platform, installed last December in 800 ft (244 m) of water near the existing Mari-B platform, is designed to process up to 1.2 bcf/d of natural gas. Subsea wells are connected to the platform by 150-km (93-mi) flowlines.

Plans are underway for a second Tamar phase that could include a 3.4 MMtpa-capacity floating LNG system for gas export.

Noble holds a 36% stake in the Tamar license. Remaining partners are Isramco Negev 2 Limited Partnership, with 28.75%, and Dor Gas Exploration, which has a 4% stake.
