Israel: Tamar resumes production after crack in pipe fixed

Noble Energy has restarted gas production from the Tamar gas field offshore Israel following last week’s shutdown.

As previously reported, Noble Energy had discovered a crack on a pipe aboard the Tamar gas platform in the Mediterranean. The exhaust pipe in question is used to release natural gas and pressure aboard the platform.

After finding the fault the company stopped production. According to Delek, a partner in the field, the repair works were completed on Tuesday, and the Tamar field was returned in production on Wednesday.

Worth noting, Delek said, Noble is continuing to carry out the planned upgrade works on the Tamar platform.

The Tamar field sits some 90 kilometers west of Haifa, in waters that are 1,700 meters deep. The field covers an area of 100 square kilometers, with the thickness of the reservoir layers reaching up to 300 meters.

The field started producing gas and delivering it to the local market in Israel in 2013.
