Chevron shuts down and depressurizes the Tamar natural gas platform off Israel’s coast in accordance with instructions received from the Energy Ministry, a company spokeswoman tells the Reuters news agency.

In a statement to the Times of Israel, the ministry says there is “no connection” between the decision by Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz to shut the rig and the “completely untrue” reports of attempts to attack it.
