The producer is leading development for the largest energy project in Israel’s history, with the first phase of the estimated 22 Tcf Leviathan development to include four subsea wells, each capable of flowing more than 300 MMcf/d.
“The Leviathan project is 96% complete, and the production decks were installed on the jacket in the third quarter,” management said.
“Delivery of the Leviathan project is ahead of schedule and below budget.” In addition, the installed production decks set “the offshore world record for the largest crane vessel lift in history” at 15,300 metric tons. ■
