Yatom: Decrease reliance on Egyptian gas

April 27, 2011 10:54

Former Mossad director Danny Yatom called on Wednesday for increased drilling in the Leviathan and Tamar gas fields, in response to the attack on the Israel-Egypt gas pipeline.

"This is a problem that we will probably have for a long time," Yatom told Army Radio. "In order to deal with it, we need to accelerate the gas supply from Tamar and Leviathan so that the gas from these reserves can reach power plants more quickly and decrease our reliance on Egyptian gas."
