The Interior Ministry's National Council for Planning and Zoning chose on Tuesday Hadera as the best offshore site for a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) buoy, which has been promoted by the National Infrastructures Ministry as the best solution for closing the gap between Yam Tethys's termination and the connection of the Tamar gas field to the grid.

Meanwhile, the Interior Ministry approved a permit to lay underwater pipeline for gas transmission between Tamar and the Ashdod port on Wednesday, so that consumers can begin to receive power from the gas as early as February 2013, a statement from the ministry said.
