New Gas Fields Could Make Israel Big Player

Editor’s Note: Over the last couple of years, over 24 trillion cubic feet of natural gas has been found off of Israel’s coastline in the Mediterranean Sea. The reserves are enough to last the country 75-100 years based up on the nation’s current level of consumption. These finds represent a huge opportunity for Israel as the discoveries are transforming the nation into a net exporter of energy. Until recently, technology has driven the tiny country’s economy. Now, however, Israel’s natural gas reserves will provide a new revenue stream which will turn eyes from two directions. From Europe and the West who will likely become importing partners. And from the Middle East, who will not be excited about new competition in the energy sector from the Jewish state. We’ll keep our eyes on this one…

Goldman Sachs sold $250 million of BP stock before spill

The brokerage firm that’s faced the most scrutiny from regulators in the past year over the shorting of mortgage related securities seems to have had good timing when it came to something else: the stock of British oil giant BP.

According to regulatory filings, RawStory.com has found that Goldman Sachs sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman’s sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP’s stock during the quarter.
