Israel: Strong Signs of Natural Gas at Tanin Well, Says Delek

Delek Group yesterday announced that Tanin #1 exploration well reached target and strong signs of natural gas were discovered, based on tests carried out during drilling by the Operator, Noble.

The discovery well was drilled to a depth of 18,212 feet and encountered approximately 130 feet of gross natural gas pay in high-quality lower Miocene sands. The Tanin well is located in the Alon A license, approximately 13 miles northwest of the Tamar field, and in 5,100 feet of water. Discovered gross resources are estimated to range between 0.9 and 1.4 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) with a gross mean of 1.2 Tcf. This discovery de-risks other prospects located in the vicinity of Tanin.

The Tanin discovery is the sixth consecutive field discovery for Noble Energy and its partners in the Levant Basin. Four of the discovered fields have estimated gross mean resource sizes of over 1 Tcf. Including Tanin, total discovered gross mean resources in the Levant Basin are now estimated to be approximately 35 Tcf.
