TEL AVIV, Israel – Noble Energy is preparing to abandon the gas-producing Pinnacles well offshore Israel.

According to partner Delek, there has been a significant increase in the volume of water produced with the well, which will therefore be shut in.

Abandonment operations are expected to be performed next year after obtaining the necessary permits and equipment for the task.
