Delek, Tamar partners file petition to High Court in Israel

Delek Group’s gas partnerships together with the other partners in the Tamar I/12 lease, filed a petition to the High Court in Israel with regard to the non-approval of the Petroleum Commissionaire to develop Tamar South-West, by linking it to the existing facilities of the Tamar Project.

“The petition mainly includes the application for a conditional order against the respondent, instructing them to explain the reasoning behind not approving the development plan of the Tamar SW reservoir,” Delek said in a statement.

The respondent’s refusal to approve the development plan of Tamar SW appears to be due to the fact that the reservoir covers a small part of the Eran/353 license. Delek Group’s partnerships (including some of the partners in the Tamar lease) had rights in the Eran/353 license, whose validity expired despite their request to extend it,” it added.

The partnerships together with the other rights holders in the Eran/353 license have submitted an appeal to the Minister of National Infrastructures, Energy and Water Resources on October 3, 2013, on which a decision has not yet been made.
