Natural gas platform Karish FPSO arrives in Israel

The platform will allow entry of more players in Israel energy sector.

Natural gas platform “Karish FPSO” has arrived in Israel’s exclusive economic zone, which will allow more players into the country’s energy sector. 

The platform arrived five weeks after leaving the shipyards in Singapore, where it was built over the past years. 

“The connection of the third platform will allow for an increasing number of players in Israel to switch from burning coal and mazut to using natural gas,” Minister of Energy, Karine Elharrar said.

“We will continue to work for the diversification of the energy sector and preserve its stability and reliability in normal times and in emergencies for the benefit of all the citizens of Israel.” 

The platform will be connected to the Karish reservoir as well as other reservoirs in the area. It is an addition to “Tamar” and “Leviathan” platforms. 

According to the Ministry of Energy, Karish FPSO will “significantly reinforce the redundancy of the supply and Israel’s energetic security. 

The platform, which forms part of the Natural Gas framework, is scheduled to start commercial production in September.

In addition to this, Israel will also have three separate natural gas reservoirs that are connected to the domestic market through three independent production systems.
