Israel Sinai-Levant exploration basin


Israel Sinai-Levant exploration basin

Report summary

Israel's Sinai - Levant Basin comprises the eastern-most portion of the Mediterranean Sea along with the onshore region extending from the Sinai Peninsula to Syria. This report covers the offshore portion of the basin, which has two main plays: the deep Oligo-Miocene sandstones which are primarily in deepwater and ultra-deepwater, and the shallower Pliocene play which is most prospective in the shelf area. The potential for large gas field discoveries is excellent, with the petroleum system proven by the giant Tamar and Leviathan gas fields, which collectively hold 32 tcf of recoverable gas. However, the multi-tcf Zohr discovery in neighbouring Egypt will limit the gas export options for Israel gas. Israel's first bid round will open in November 2016 with a total of 24 blocks on offer.

Description

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
