Huge Gas Reservoir Found Off the Coast of Israel

Israel’s energy grid relays mostly on coal burning. Several years ago, a large gas reservoir had been found off the coast of Ashkelon, and related construction is still under way to utilize it.

However, today it was announced that a natural gas reservoir, three times bigger than that off the coast of Ashkelon, has been found off the coast of Haifa. The reservoir is apparently 90 Kilometers west of the coast, and extracting it wouldn’t be an easy task.

Nevertheless, this is a huge discovery for the people of Israel, and it could help the tiny country become much less dependent on foreign oil.
