​​​​Join Israel's gas revolution!​

In the past 15 years, Israel had transformed from a net importer of fossil fuels to self-sufficient in its gas consumption, presently providing for 50% of electricity generation.
                                   
 

 

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.
