What are the experts saying?

"An offshore FPSO/FLNG option would dramatically reduce near shore risks and impacts of the (leviathan) project."
Professor Richard Steiner
Word renown expert and adivsor to governments and the UN on spills

The safer alternative

A Floating Gas Processing Platform (FPSO),
over the gas field, 74 miles from Israel's coast!

Since 2010, 97% of deep-water oil and gas fields are developed using offshore FPSOs, above the  fields. This is the case for Karish and Tanin, two Israeli gas fields located near the Leviathan field.

Israel’s Ministry of Energy praised the developers of Karish and Tanin for choosing an offshore FPSO and by that, minimizing the hazards to Israel’s public health and environment. Yet Leviathan’s platform will be located only 6 miles from Israel’s coastline.

An offshore FPSO will minimize the risk to:

About Us

Our Organization

Homeland Guards (“Shomrey Habayit” in Hebrew) is an Israeli environmental protection organization with more than 200,000 supporters and thousands of volunteers (and growing daily!).

We are a non-profit organization, without any political agenda, funded entirely by donations.

Our Goals

  •  Ensure that raw gas is processed as far from Israel’s coastline and population centers as possible.
 
  • Prevent the transportation, storage and treatment of hazardous by-products of natural gas processing, such as condensate, in close proximity to Israeli population centers.
 
  • Move Israel’s petrochemical industry far away from population centers.

Our Principles

  • We are non-political
  • We are non-violent
  • We engage in respectful dialog

“Look at My works, how beautiful and praiseworthy they are! And all that I have created, it was for you that I created it. Pay attention that you do not corrupt and destroy My world: if you corrupt it, there is no one to repair it after you.”
