Israel has started supplying gas to the country’s transmission system from its largest natural gas field, Leviathan. The Ministry of Power gave this information on Tuesday. According to the news agency Xinhua, the gas field was discovered in the Mediterranean Sea in 2010 and contains 500 billion cubic meters of natural gas. There are four production wells in Leviathan, from which the gas goes hundreds of kilometers through a pipeline. According to the ministry, Israel’s energy economy as a gas field meets the need for additional collection of natural gas sources, allowing it to export natural gas to neighboring countries Egypt and Jordan and Europe. Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said, “For Israel, it is a festival day. This is a very important macroeconomic and geopolitical event.” “Thanks to the development of Leviathan, the Israeli public will earn billions of dollars over the next 25 years,” he said.
