Give priority to gas pipeline between Israel and Europe - Stienitz

The government should give top priority to the rapid promotion of the construction of the Mediterranean gas pipeline between Israel and Europe, Former Minister of energy Dr. Stienitz, tweeted Friday. 

Steinitz claims that in this time of the dramatic rise in energy prices worldwide, and of severe shortages of natural gas in Europe, it is of immense importance to promote Israel's ability to export gas directly to Europe through pipelines that cross the Mediterranean. 

Israel is already exporting gas to Europe through the liquefaction facilities in Egypt, and there has also been talking of building another gas pipeline from Israel to Turkey.
