Texas-headquartered Ness Energy International Inc. received official certification from the Israeli Minister of National Infrastructures that authorizes Ness to operate as a petroleum works contractor on Licenses 290/Hesed and 292/Masada for two years or until the termination of petroleum rights.
The certification makes Ness Energy a legally operating company in Israel.
This coincides with Ness' official registration with the state of Israel in October 2000 as a U.S. company duly authorized to conduct business in Israel.
Ness officials reported that additional work was under way by the land rig Emsco 1500 to re-enter and deepen the Har Sedom #1 well on the Hesed License.
Ness officials also said that reprocessing of the final seismic lines as well as the completion of one new seismic line would be completed soon.
