Energean hands in development plan for Karish & Tanin gas fields off Israel

Greek oil company Energean Oil & Gas has submitted the Field Development Plan (FDP) for the Karish and Tanin natural gas fields, offshore Israel, to the Israeli Petroleum Commissioner.

Energean’s subsidiary, Energean Israel, holds 100% of Karish and Tanin, which combined have 2.7 TCF of natural gas and 41 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe) of light hydrocarbon liquids, totaling 531 mmboe 2C resources.

The Greek company said on Tuesday that the Karish Main Development envisages drilling three wells, using a new floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit that will be installed approximately 90 km away from shore, with 400 mmscf/day capacity. The development through an FPSO will enable Energean to maximize the recovery of reserves and minimize environmental impact. It will also allow light hydrocarbons liquid to be safely processed, stored and offloaded away from the coast, with minimal onshore installations needed, the company added.

Energean has already appointed TechnipFMC as the contractor for Concept and Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the development.

The Karish Main Development will also comprise a dry gas pipeline connecting the field to the Israeli natural gas transmission system. First gas is expected in 2020. Total estimated capex for the Karish development is $1.3-1.5 billion.

Back in February, Energean teamed up with the private equity fund manager Kerogen Capital, which committed to invest in the development of the Karish and Tanin gas fields. The proceeds from Kerogen’s initial $50 million investment were used to finance the acquisition and key workstreams to investment sanction including FEED studies and the Field Development Plan.

The Tanin Area Development will follow the development of Karish and envisages drilling six wells connected to the same FPSO.

During the term of the lease, which runs until 2044, and which may be extended to 2054, the Karish and Tanin development is estimated to deliver 88 BCM of natural gas to the Israeli market while up to 44 million barrels of light hydrocarbon liquids will potentially be exported to regional and international markets.

On submitting the FDP, Energean Chairman & CEO, Mathios Rigas, commented: “We will continue working closely with the Israeli Government to obtain the required approval of the FDP as soon as possible in order to be able to reach Final Investment Decision by the end of 2017. Following the gas sales agreement signed recently with Dalia Power Energies and Or Power Energies, we are in discussions with other buyers eager to benefit from competitive terms offered for the supply of gas in Israel.”
