According to the report, 67 percent of the Leviathan gas field production goes to Egypt and Jordan. The total production of the Leviathan reservoir was approximately 2.7 billion cubic meters in the first quarter of 2022, 0.7 billion cubic meters of which reached Jordan and 1.1 billion cubic meters Egypt. The rest, of 0.9 million cubic meters, was for Israeli consumption.
