On the evening of Tuesday, September 10, engineers of the Tamar gas production consortium completed work on the elimination of a malfunction in the gas pipeline supplying natural gas to Israel.
Gas supplies have been resumed after two weeks of a complete transition of Israeli power plants to other types of fuel.
It should be reminded that two weeks ago the consortium announced that it had cut gas supplies by half due to the planned maintenance of the gas pipeline.
However, already on the first day, a problem was identified that led to a complete shutdown of the gas pipeline.
A crack was found in one of the ventilation pipes of the gas pipeline. The ability to weld it was weighed to reduce downtime, but Noble Energy insisted on a complete replacement of the damaged pipe section.
