Leviathan – the largest energy project in the history of the State of Israel – delivers first gas. Learn more.
Noble Energy’s work in the Eastern Mediterranean can be described in firsts. With groundbreaking discoveries and major project execution, we are advancing energy security in the region with a long-term, reliable supply of natural gas.
We made the first discovery offshore Israel in the Levant Basin in 1999 and delivered the country’s first domestic natural gas in 2004. Today, our Tamar Platform supplies approximately 70 percent of the country’s power generation and the Leviathan field delivered first gas in December 2019.
We are also the first operator to discover natural gas resources offshore the Republic of Cyprus in the Levant Basin. In November 2019, we entered an amended production sharing contract and received the first exploitation license granted by the Government of Cyprus. These agreements provide a fiscal and regulatory pathway for economic development of the Aphrodite field. Learn more about our activities in Cyprus.
