The revised best estimate of gross recoverable prospective resources of oil and gas on the Yam Hadera license is extremely encouraging as the improved estimates, complements our existing portfolio of high impact oil blocks in the proven oil trend offshore Israel and enables our shareholders to participate more significantly in the emerging oil story of the Eastern Mediterranean.
