The production decks have sailed from the Gulf Coast fabrication yard for Israel.

During 2Q work on the EMG pipeline system, which will export gas to Egypt, confirmed pipeline integrity and flow capacity.

Noble expects to close its acquisition of an interest in the pipeline during the current quarter.

Also, the company’s second quarter gas sales from its fields offshore Israel were above expectations at 210 MMcfe/d. This was due to a combination of high seasonal gas demand and lower than planned maintenance.
