The National Infrastructure Ministry has stepped up its search for oil and gas in the Levant field in the Mediterranean Sea, 200 kilometers off the coast of Israel. The ministry said the main evidence for the presence of oil and gas was found during shallow drilling near Ashkelon, which produced non-commercial but high-quality oil in a number of deep-sea holes. By combining the research data, scientists have been able to gain a deeper understanding of the geology of the Levant Field and a better idea of how it can be developed.
