The American production company Noble Energy is expected to announce in the coming days an investment of $550 million in the development of Israel’s Leviathan gas field, according to a company outlook and guidance report for 2017 published Monday.

The $550 million represents one-fifth of the company’s global investments of $2.3 billion to $2.6 billion for 2017.

Noble Energy President and CEO David Stover said in the guidance report, “We have a tremendous opportunity with the Leviathan project offshore Israel. In 2017, our teams will begin project development, with first gas targeted for the end of 2019. I have no doubt that our outstanding track record of major project execution will again deliver substantial value to the company.”

The report also said, “Capital expenditures in the Eastern Mediterranean for the initial development of the Leviathan project include drilling one production well, long-lead investment items, and ramp up of construction activities. The company will also complete an additional production well at Tamar [gas field], which was drilled in the fourth quarter of 2016.”

Israel is currently engaged in discussions with Turkey, Cyprus, Greece and Italy over the possibility of exporting its natural gas via underwater pipelines.
