Mr. David L. Stover / Noble Energy
Save the Mediterranean Sea and millions of people from a health & ecological disaster, threatend by Noble Energy’s gas rig.
We demand that the gas processing rig be located at the actual site of the Leviathan gas well, 70 miles from shore, The existing location planned - only 6 miles away from shore will seriously impact the health of both the nearby marine and human populations.

We’re concerned that along with the heavy pollution inherent to the standard processing of natural gas to its usable form, there will also be incidents of oil spills and toxic, carcinogenic materials released into the sea, both of which will irreversible pollute the sea, beaches and most importantly the water produced in the desalination plant, only several miles away.

Dear citizens of the world,
You have the power to save children of the Mediterranean coast from irreversible health damages caused by irresponsible gas and oil developments by Noble Energy Inc., one of the most polluting corporations in the world.
We demand transparency about the risks.

We are facing an extreme, irreversible health and environmental disaster to the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, with severe implications for residents along the coastline. The residents are fighting the vast resources of Noble Energy and its partners, which successfully established strong connections with leading politicians worldwide. The gas and oil rig is about to be built using outdated technology, only 6 miles from shore, that will release enormous amounts of toxic & carcinogenic materials to the air and sea. Potential incidents of oil spills will cause irreversible damage to the sea and beaches. Noble Energy’s dubious history with malfunctions, pollution and oil spills in the United States reinforces our concerns. We request that the rig be located above the actual gas well, 70 miles from shore, using the best available technology (FPSO) used worldwide, to prevent the extreme life pollution to the air and the sea.
