Energy Trade Mission to Israel

The Governor’s office and the Israeli Energy and Economic Mission in Houston, Texas invite Texas companies to join them in Israel for an energy trade mission.

Israel’s energy sector is going through momentous changes due to the development of its vast offshore natural gas reserve. The country’s first offshore gas field in the Mediterranean Sea, Yam Thetis, came online in 2004, followed by the much larger Tamar field in 2013. Another significant gas discovery, Leviathan, began development in 2017. Israel’s rapidly developing gas industry is a great opportunity for Texas oil and gas field technology and service providers.
