Berri presented a report on oil and gas drilling


During a press conference Lebanese Speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that he presented a full report on the need to drill for natural resources along Lebanon’s coastline at the last dialogue session.

“A Norwegian company recently estimated 220 trillion cubic feet of gas in Lebanon’s waters, in addition to 308 million barrels of oil,” Berri said.

Israel has begun to drill for natural gas near the borders with Lebanon.

According to As Safir newspaper if Israel siphons gas from Lebanese territory, Lebanon would be forced to defend the waters adding “Israel is preparing to steal gas fields in Lebanon’s waters.”
