As Israel prepares for gas to flow from the Leviathan reservoir by 2019, development partner Noble Energy is determined to see a thriving hydrocarbon sector within the country’s borders.

“What we are trying to do now is build a domestic oil and gas industry in Israel,” Bini Zomer, Israel country manager for Noble Energy, told Jerusalem Post Annual Conference attendees on Sunday.

Participating in a panel about the country’s economy, Zomer stressed the importance of building a robust Israeli work force capable of fueling the emerging gas industry.

To do so, the company has teamed up with a variety of partners to educate students from a young age on what the sector has to offer, as well as provide essential training for engineers and blue collar workers that, until recently, according to Zomer, has been lacking in Israel.

Among these educational ventures are Noble-Ruppin Center for Energy and Natural Gas to train energy professionals; the Taasiyeda program to expose young people to the world of energy; the Haznek Lataasiya program to steer at-risk youth toward advanced technological studies; and the Noble Energy Science Park – a collaboration with Madatech – The National Science, Technology and Space Museum in Haifa.

“We have a purpose at Noble – energizing the world,” said Zomer.
