Afek oil and gas hopes to find out what lies beneath the Golan Heights as they announced the beginning of the analysis phase for the Ness-2 drilling site, also known as “Deborah's Well.”

This analysis phase began after flow tests, which aim to determine how much oil may be in a reservoir, concluded at the site on Thursday. Now, the task is to identify the contents of the ground wells and what products might come from it, which Afek said will be carried out by their own scientific crew as well as “external international experts.”

The company noted in a statement earlier in the month that the flow tests, focused on certain segments, produced gaseous hydrocarbons as well as small amounts of heavy oil.
