Drilling for peace

TotalEnergies said that as a result of the maritime boundary agreement between Israel and Lebanon, the French major would start exploration activities with Italian partner Eni of an already identified prospect in Block 9 of the new pipeline gas and LNG area of the East Mediterranean. The Block 9 partners said they would initiate the exploration which might extend Block 9 into Israeli waters, south of the recently established Maritime Border Line. The companies said preparations for exploration activities will start with the purchase of required equipment and the procurement of a drilling rig.
