TEL AVIV (Reuters) — Greek energy firm Energean Oil & Gas said on Thursday it has signed additional agreements for the supply of natural gas from the Karish and Tanin fields off Israel’s coast with subsidiaries of the Israel Corp conglomerate.

Agreements for the supply of up to 2.6 Bcm of natural gas annually were signed with Israel Chemicals, Oil Refineries and the independent power producer OPC.
ICL said separately that Energean would supply it with up to 13 Bcm of gas for up to $1.9 B over 15 yr.
In addition, an agreement for up to 0.3 Bcm was signed with energy and infrastructure focused Rapac Group.
The new agreements, together with those already signed with Dalia Group, Dorad Group and Edeltech Group, bring the annual total committed purchase volume to more than 4 Bcm/yr of natural gas from Karish and Tanin.
“In just one year since the Israeli government granted its approval for the acquisition of the Karish and Tanin fields, Energean has succeeded in securing its targeted gas supply volume to help de-risk the project,” CEO Mathios Rigas said.

Indonesia, home to 260 MM people on 14,000 islands across a vast archipelago, is estimated to become the seventh-largest economy in the world by 2030, with such growth expected to boost the nation’s energy consumption by 80% from present levels.<sup>1</sup>

In one of the toughest markets in the history of gas compression, we are challenged to deliver more with less.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
