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.

At CERAWeek by IHS Markit, held in Houston in March, IEA Director Fatih Birol said that the world would soon see a major second wave of shale gas production from the US in response to higher energy prices and growing demand from India and China.
Mozambique and Tanzania hold an estimated 180 Tft3 and 57 Tft3 of proven natural gas reserves, respectively.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
