These anchors are part of an offshore regasification plant anchored about 10 miles off the coast of Israel, which supplies gas to the gas terminal Hadera north of Tel Aviv.

The gas is discharged in liquid form from conventional LNG ships to a regasification vessel. A special buoy, used to anchor the regasification vessel and its pipeline, is secured in place by the eight suction anchors and eight sections of chain 400 to 600 m in length.
