Noble Energy to Cut Tamar Gas Flow Due to Leak

Noble Energy will halt the flow of gas from Tamar on Saturday due to a gas leak in the pipeline of the Ashdod gas terminal, according to a report from Israeli financial daily Globes.

The temporary stop is set to last 12 hours, from 04:00 to 16:00, and Globes has claimed that Noble has already notified the Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) to prepare for the lack of gas. Sources are said to have informed Globes that the IEC is making arrangements to use liquefied gas on an LNG ship that is located 6 miles west of northern Israeli city Hadera.

Globes included a quote from the Tamar partners in its report, which stated:

"During monitoring and control work, small leakage was noticed in one of the pipelines at the Ashdod receiving terminal. There is no danger that any harm will be caused to people, to the environment or to the facility. The character of the leak enabled us to examine together with our clients the optimum time for doing the repair work, namely over this weekend, when the weather will be somewhat less hot and demand in the market and in the industrial sector for electricity is lower."
