State-owned Israel Electric Corp (IEC) on Wednesday called on the government and natural gas producers to build more pipelines to prevent disruption to gas supplies.

Israel has one pipeline to deliver gas from various fields off its Mediterranean coast. It was built for gas supplies from the Yam Thetis site to the southern city of Ashkelon.

But Yam Thetis is depleted and has been largely replaced by the large Tamar well off the northern shore that came online in March and the pipeline now runs from Tamar to Ashkelon.
