Israel gas output rebounded strongly in Q1, rising 18% sequentially to 2.526bn cfd, just shy of the record 2.659bn cfd hit in Q3 last year, according to preliminary figures obtained by MEES. The strong rebound was largely driven by a near doubling of output to 1.02bn cfd at the Chevron-operated 14tcf Tamar field from Q4’s three-year low 595mn cfd due to a one-month shutdown after Hamas’ 7 October attack (MEES, 13 October 2023). Though the Tamar field lies far off northern Israel, output is piped onshore via a platform just 25km offshore Gaza (see map).
