Israeli gas field delays start of commercial operations

The launch of production at Israel’s Leviathan natural gas field has been delayed pending permits from the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

“The flow of gas from the reservoir hasn’t yet begun,” Israel’s Delek Drilling LP, a partner to the project, said Tuesday in a statement to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. “The partnership believes that it will begin in coming days, after the necessary permits are received from the Ministry of Environmental Protection.” The statement didn’t elaborate.
