- Amid the latest flareup of Middle East violence, one-time enemies Israel and Egypt are negotiating deals that may mean the sale of $60B in Israeli natural gas to liquefaction plants in Egypt.
- Executives at Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) and units of Israel’s Delek Group said this week they expect to finalize by year-end agreements to deliver as much as 6.2T cf of gas over 15 years from the Tamar and Leviathan offshore fields to LNG facilities in Egypt.
- For Israel, the two fields have more than enough gas to supply it for decades, so it is seeking a way to export the excess, and shipping it to Egypt would be faster than building LNG plants; the Russia-Ukraine crisis has made energy security a top priority for Europe, which will be scrutinizing all potential energy sources.

- The partners in Israel's Leviathan natural gas field, including Noble Energy (NBL), Delek Group (DGRLY) and Ratio Oil (RTEXF) have announced a newly signed preliminary agreement with BG Group (BRGYY, BRGXF), for a deal exporting gas to BG's LNG plant in Idku, Egypt.
- Although still far from finalized, the deal may be valued at $30B, and would supply an annual 7B cubic meters of gas to BG for 15 years. The final agreement is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

- Woodside Petroleum (WOPEF) has dropped an agreement to acquire a 25% stake in the massive Leviathan natural-gas field off the coast of Israel for up to $2.7B.
- One reason for the withdrawal was a dispute over exports: the existing owners, which include Noble Energy (NBL), mainly want to pipe the gas to countries close to Israel such as Jordan and Turkey, whereas Woodside would prefer to use its LNG expertise to sell to more distant markets.
- Another problem was a tax dispute with the Israeli government.
- In addition to Noble, Leviathan's owners are Delek Group (DGRLY) and Ratio Oil (RTEXF).
- The collapse of the deal raises questions about Woodside's growth prospects, with speculation rising that it might now look at acquisitions.

- The group that is drilling for gas at the huge Leviathan field off the coast of Israel is in "advanced negotiations" with the government to sell two smaller reserves in order to assuage antitrust concerns.

- Israeli conglomerate Delek Group (DGRLY, DLKGF) is examining a spinoff of its oil and gas activities, saying it could help maximize value for shareholders by separately listing a bunch of assets which one analyst values at ~$3.6B.
- Delek would transfer to the new company its holdings in Delek Energy Systems (DLKNF), Delek Drilling (DKDRF), Avner Oil (AVOGF) and others, and would include rights to receive royalties from the energy sector.
- UBS analyst Roni Biron says Delek is the only Israeli E&P vehicle not structured as a limited partnership, and its holding structure had made it less popular among international investors.

- Israel's lack of preparations for exporting offshore natural gas have postponed drilling and threaten a $2.3B investment from Australia’s Woodside Petroleum (WOPEF, WOPEY), which is examining other options in case details of drilling at the Leviathan gas field aren’t settled in H1 2014, Bloomberg reports.
- The 2010 discovery of Leviathan, then the biggest offshore find in a decade, looked like it would provide a bonanza for Israel, but after taking two years to decide how much gas to export, Israel hasn’t agreed on details such as where to build refineries, and partners are still discussing how to transport the fuel.
- The delays have contributed to a big drop this month in shares of Delek Group (DGRLY, DLKGF), the project’s biggest Israeli partner, and smaller losses in Noble Energy (NBL) and Avner Oil (AVOGF).

Mar. 31, 2013, 4:57 AMIsrael has started production of natural gas from its offshore Tamar field, taking the country further along the road towards energy independence.
