Noble Energy Confirms Tamar Gas Halt

Noble Energy has confirmed that it will halt the flow of gas from Tamar this coming weekend, following a gas leak in one of the pipes at the Ashdod Onshore Terminal.

Noble Energy International Media Relations & Communications Manager Paula Beasly commented in a statement to Rigzone:

“In the midst of our routine oversight and operations we identified a minor leak in one of the pipes at the Ashdod Onshore Terminal.  This incident does not endanger our people, the environment or the facility.  The nature of the leak has allowed us to coordinate, together with our customers, the timing of the repairs which will take place over this coming weekend when temperatures will decrease and market demand for gas will be lower.”

The temporary stop is set to last for 12 hours and Israeli financial daily Globes has reported that the Israel Electric Corporation has already been warned to prepare for the lack of gas.
