Join Israel's gas revolution!
Discovery of giant gas fields in the Levant Basin, offshore Israel and in neighboring countries have proven the potential of this world-class petroleum province. The Ministry of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources promotes the fast development of discovered gas fields and is seeking to expand offshore, exploration and production activity. We are committed to provide long-term regulatory stability and favorable environment for investment.
Our vision is to bring the benefits of natural gas not only to the Israeli citizens but also to other countries in the region and further away.
Aiming to become a center for the petroleum industry and a hub of technology and innovation, we invite you to join us in this endeavor and participate in Israel's upcoming offshore Bid Round.
The Israeli EEZ occupies the central part of the Levant Basin. This deep marine basin, where water depth reaches up to 2000m, is located in the southeastern part of the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by the land mases of Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus (See map below).
