Drilling for oil has begun in the south of the Golan Heights, US oil exploration firm Genie Energy said in statement on Monday.

In September 2014, Afek Oil and Gas, a subsidiary of US-based Genie Energy, initially won the Israeli government’s approval for oil drilling on 153 square miles (400 km sq.) of the Golan Heights.

The company’s three year license allows for conventional oil exploration to a maximum of 10 wells in the south of the occupied Golan Heights, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The area, at one time Syrian territory, was occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War and was annexed in 1981. The move sparked criticism of Israel as the annexation of the Golan Heights into Israeli territory is not internationally recognized.

Drilling was planned for mid-January but was delayed several times due to environmental opposition. The Israeli High Court issued an order for the temporary cessation of the Golan Heights drilling operations, to give the state more time to respond to a petition from environmentalists. However, the order was overturned and the petitions were dismissed on December 23.

The Golan Heights is home to Lake Tiberias, Israel’s main water source and internationally recognized as an area of natural beauty.

Genie Energy is run by Effi Eitam, a 60-year-old former right wing Israeli Cabinet minister. He currently resides in Golan Heights.

Israel has also discovered two natural gas fields near the northern city of Haifa; the Tamar field with an estimated capacity of 280 billion cubic meters, and the bigger Leviathan field, with an estimated 530 billion cubic meters capacity.

Tamar started production in March 2013, while the Leviathan field is due to start operating in 2016 or 2017.

Drilling to start at Golan Heights oil exploration site …

Drilling was set to begin at a Golan Heights oil exploration site in the late night hours of Monday, the company announced that evening.

The project, which is being implemented by Afek Oil and Gas, involves three years of exploration for conventional oil using up to 10 wells. The company chose site No. 5 out of 10 to start with, located north of Nahal El Al near Moshav Natur, a former kibbutz on the southern Golan Heights. Preparatory work for the drilling, including rig assembly, began at the end December.

“I’m extremely happy with the work crews, with the quality of the work,” Afek Oil CEO Geoffrey Rochwarger told The Jerusalem Post, over the phone from the site, on Monday night.

Although the drilling site is now up and running, the project faced several delays along the way due to environmental opposition.

The project received its exploratory drilling license for a 395-sq.km. plot south of Katzrin in April 2013, followed by approval at the Northern District Committee for Planning and Building on July 24, 2014.

However, on September 1, 2014, Adam Teva VDin (Israel Union for Environmental Defense) and a group of Golan Heights residents submitted a petition to the High Court of Justice, demanding the project’s cancellation. In the petition, the complainants wrote that the petroleum in the region is likely tight oil, meaning it could require non-conventional drilling procedures such as fracking.

Afek Oil has maintained that the oil in the region is just as likely conventional as tight, and would not necessarily require fracking for extraction. Meanwhile, the permit issued by the Northern District Committee allows only for exploratory drilling in a gradual, site-by-site manner, prohibiting non-conventional oil production.

At the end of September, the High Court issued an order for the temporary cessation of Golan Heights drilling operations, to give the state more time to respond to the petition.

While this order was extended at the end of October, the justices removed the order and dismissed the petitions on December 23.

Just this past Wednesday, Rochwarger said that the site was visited by members of the assigned government oversight committee, who expressed approval with the ongoing preparatory operations there. All in all, drilling at the first site will take about 45 days, he said. While drilling can occur at night as long as the noise remains under a certain number of decibels, work will not occur during Shabbats, Rochwarger explained.

Syrian troops, Hezbollah launch major offensive near Golan – Quincy Herald-Whig | Illinois & Missouri News, Sports

By BASSEM MROUE Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) – Syrian troops backed by Lebanese Hezbollah fighters swept south of the capital Damascus on Wednesday, seizing strategic hills and villages from rebels and a local al-Qaida affiliate near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

State media and opposition activists said the surprise counteroffensive is aimed at forcing back rebels who had recently advanced closer to embattled President Bashar Assad’s seat of power.

The region is also important because it is located near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The area has been tense lately, particularly after a Jan. 18 Israeli airstrike in Quneitra on the edge of the Golan that killed six Hezbollah fighters and an Iranian general.

The Syrian government last year lost large parts of Quneitra province to opposition fighters, many of them from the Nusra Front.

State television said troops on Wednesday gained control of the town of Deir al-Adas and the village of Deir Maker, as well as the nearby areas of Tal al-Arous and Tal al-Sarjeh south of the capital.

A statement by the Syrian armed forces said the “successes” were important because they severed supply lines and communication between “terrorist outposts” in the Damascus countryside, the southern Daraa province and Quneitra.

Activists said the operation was being led by Hezbollah’s special forces. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said their aim appears to be to set up a border zone under Hezbollah’s control next to the part of the Golan seized by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war.

The Observatory, which relies on a network of activists around the country, said Iranian volunteers are also taking part in the fighting. It said 20 opposition fighters were killed there on Tuesday alone. The report could not be independently confirmed.

Hezbollah says it has been fighting alongside forces loyal to Assad against Sunni Islamic extremists who pose a threat to the whole region. Israeli officials accuse Iran, through Hezbollah, of working to establish a base in southern Syria to launch attacks against the Jewish state. Hezbollah denies seeking any military presence there.
