According to Reuters, partners in the Leviathan field, which is located offshore Israel in the Mediterranean, are considering constructing a floating LNG (FLNG) facility to liquefy and export gas.

Reuters reports that these partners include Noble Energy and Delek Drilling. The partners signed agreements with both Golar LNG Ltd and Exmar NV in order to receive plans for such a facility.

According to Reuters, the aim is to sign a long-term agreement with one of these companies, which will subsequently finance, construct, operate and maintain the facility if a final decision is taken to proceed with the project.

Leviathan holds 22 trillion ft3 of reserves, and Reuters reports that an FLNG facility would allow the production of approximately 2.4 million tpy – 5 million tpy of LNG.

According to the plan that is currently being looked at, gas will be piped from the Leviathan production platform to the FLNG facility. Here, the gas will be liquefied and transferred onto LNG vessels.
