Oil drilling to continue in Golan Heights

02 Feb 2016

Afek Oil and Gas will continue its search for oil after receiving a two-year extension permit in the Golan Heights area.

The Northern District Committee for Planning and Building approved the permit which will allow Afek to explore for conventional oil at up to 10 sites in a 39,500-hectare zone south of Katzrin.

Afek has already completed drilling at four sites since February 2015 and is now looking to begin operations on its fifth site.
