Israel Speeds up Construction of Gas Pipeline

Minister of National Infrastructures Uzi Landau told “IDF Radio” (Galei Zahal) today that Israel will speed up construction of the gas pipeline from the offshore Tamar field.

We’re organizing the matter, and quickly. The Tamar field gas pipeline will be connected during 2013. We’re also preparing a back-up for this pipeline, in other words, the ability to use coal, diesel, and heavy industrial oil. We’re also working on building a dual-fuel plant, which can operate on natural gas and coal, and are acting to receive gas via a floating terminal.”

Commenting on the latest attack on the gas pipeline in Egypt, which was closed as a result, Landau said, “Our system is ready to handle events of this kind and provide a response. Let’s wait and see how things will develop. Both we and they have a paramount importance in preserving the peace treaty and economic agreements.”
