As an update to the exploration of the Island’s offshore deposits, the Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias claimed that the field could hold 5 to 8 trillion cubic feet of Natural Gas. The estimate is based on results returned by exploratory drilling by U.S. firm Noble Energy.
Some officials have said that 1 trillion cubic feet could meet the island’s energy needs for THIRTY YEARS!
Although it will increase tension with Turkey, it has already begun attracting attention from international investors.
