Another 80% is expected to become available at handover of the infrastructure in 2021, with the remaining 5% due following an 18 month warranty period.

The MOU covers the onshore section of the Karish and Tanin infrastructure and the near shore section of pipeline extending to approximately 10km offshore. The hand over to INGL will occur shortly after the delivery of first gas from the Karish field in 1Q 2021. Following handover, INGL will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of this part of the infrastructure. Energean will not incur any charges or tariffs for use of this infrastructure. Energean expects the detailed agreement to be signed in 1Q 2019.

It will encourage exploration and development of natural gas and contribute to Israel’s energy security in the future”.

CEO of Energean Oil & Gas plc, Mathios Rigas, said: “This is another important milestone for the Karish and Tanin development. The collaboration with INGL demonstrates the Israeli government’s support and commitment to the Karish Tanin project, from which natural gas will flow to the Israeli market”.

With further adaptation, the system will be able to serve for Israeli gas export to future destinations as well”.
