Leviathan partners sign $3B gas sales deal

Report Leviathan partners sign $3B gas sales deal

Partners developing the Leviathan gas field offshore Israel, have signed a deal to sell $3 billion worth of gas from the field to Israels’ IPM.

According to Israeli media, the deal was revealed during the weekend and entails the partners in the field will supply gas to IPM over the period of 18 years. The gas will be used for the power plant IPM will build at the south of Israel, approximately 60 km from Jerusalem.

The power plant will supply different consumers at the Beer Tuvia industrial zone, with any surplus electricity to be sold to other electricity consumers via the IEC grid.

Under the supply agreement the Leviathan partners will supply IPM with an overall amount of 13 billion cubic meters of natural gas.

The signing of the contract follows a recent gas framework agreement reached between the Leviathan partners and the Israeli government, which should pave the way towards the development of the giant gas field. More on that here: https://bit.ly/27D21ou
