    Sorry but I’m fed up with reading about the so called wealth of oil and gas in Lebanon. There needs to be a geological survey of the land before anything else. It then depends on that report and its findings as to whether you go for a seismic survey. All of you in my beloved Lebanon are trying to make fools out of us intelligent people so please stop making excuses for robbing the public purse and getting the country in to more debt so you can create jobs for your friends and family. Creating a petroleum administration – what for !? Our country is in debt to the tune of US$ 66 billion so respect the few of us who can still call ourselves Lebanese.

    So sorry Lebanon have no oil no gas

      The petroleum administration is meant to create yet a new group of thieves each reporting to their respective gang leader and who will meet once every 6 months to disagree on everything.
      People will be able to extract this gas with a straw before the “government” takes a decision about it.

            no need to be sorry, if they’ll ever get to extract anything flammable they’ll use it to burn the whole country.

            Although, I’d believe it will be pumped dry before Lebanon gets into it ….

    Nice they painted it a bright yellow …although I’m sure the ‘following plane’ will be a jet fighter to ward off attacks from those who think everything in the air is against them.
