Plans to supply Gaza with Israeli gas through a 40-km pipeline are progressing. Studies for the proposed pipeline have been concluded, and the project’s backers have started negotiating with potential financiers. The Office of the Quartet – consisting of the UN, the EU, the United States and Russia – is coordinating the Gas for Gaza (G4G) project. It is expected to cost around $80 million, Ariel Ezrahi, director of energy at Office of the Quartet, told Interfax Natural Gas Daily.
The number of rigs targeting gas in the Middle East ticked up to 93 in January from 92 in December. Declines in Egypt, Oman and Pakistan were offset by an increased number of rigs targeting gas in Saudi Arabia, where the rig count stood at 57 in January. Eni’s exploration of Block 6 offshore Cyprus caused the overall number of rigs in operation to rise by one.
The Turkish military has obstructed a drillship contracted by Italian major Eni to explore Block 3 offshore Cyprus, resulting in a standoff between Turkey and the Greek Cypriot administration. A Turkish warship blocked the path of the Saipem 12000 vessel on Friday. The ship had been on course for a location in Block 3 after having made a modest gas discovery in Block 6, but was intercepted en route.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
