Israel's prime minister: Med pipeline would be 'revolution'

"The discovery of significant reserves of natural gas in Cyprus and Israel, Greece's strategy to become an energy hub in the region, and the possible existence of new reserves in the exclusive economic zones of Cyprus, Israel but also Greece offer extremely interesting prospects for this cooperation", Tsipras said.

The East Med pipeline investment project of up to 6 billion euros (6.7 billion US dollars) worth with a capacity of 10-16 billion cubic meters of gas annually is created to transfer the rich energy reserves that have been discovered in the eastern Mediterranean region to Europe.
