Noble Energy Announces Significant Natural Gas Discovery at Tamar Well Offshore Israel
This is one of the most significant prospects that we have ever tested and appears to be the largest discovery in the company's history. Early indications are that the resources identified are very substantial, at least equal to our pre-drill estimated gross mean resources of over three trillion cubic feet. Subject to the collection of additional data, the resource estimate for Tamar could further increase.

Quoting ZANL188 (Reply 1): Ah yes, something else for our friends in the Middle East to fight over....
Well not yet, the well has yet to be tested. So presumably there are gas shows and the wireline logs indicate gas saturation. Nothing about flow rates yet. Most sub-salt pre-drill estimates are pretty vague and it is more unusual for drilling to confirm them than show something better or worse. In this case the logs seem to show thicker reservoirs than expected.
