A new, rich oil well has been discovered at the Kochav Six site north of the Heletz oil field, it was announced here today by the Lapidot Oil Company at a press conference marking the tenth anniversary of the firm’s activities.

During the test of the new well made by Lapidot prospectors, oil gushed out from three different layers–two corresponding to those at the Heletz wells and the third, a deeper one, corresponding to Kochav Five.
