Reuters ahead of the competition on Israel orders Chevron shut down, then restart, of Tamar gas field in wake of unrest

Reuters was ahead of the competition reporting on May 12 that Israel’s energy ministry had instructed Chevron to shut down the Tamar natural gas platform off the southern coast of the country following a flare-up in violence in the Gaza Strip. Nine days later, Reuters was first to report that the energy ministry instructed Chevron to restart the platform following a ceasefire in the region. Chevron operates and holds a 25% stake in the Tamar gas field, which produced a total of 8.2 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas in 2020, of which 7.7 bcm went to Israel, 0.3 bcm to neighboring Egypt and 0.2 bcm to Jordan, data from Israeli energy firm Delek, which also holds a stake, shows.
