Energean Oil and Gas plc, the oil and gas producer focused on the Mediterranean, is pleased to announce that Energean Israel and MRC Alon Tavor Ltd. (“MRC”) have signed a Gas Sales and Purchase Agreement (“GSPA”) for the sale of approximately 0.5 Bcm/yr, or up to 8 Bcm over the term of the contract. Supply will commence at Karish first gas and the contract term is for a period of 15 years from the date of signature. The GSPA is linked to the Israeli Electricity Production Index and has floor pricing and take-or-pay provisions. Energean estimates that the GSPA will add revenues in excess of $1 billion over the term of the contract.
Energean also recently signed a contract amendment with OPC Rotem that accelerated the rate of gas consumption and increased annual gas supply by 0.2 Bcm/yr. This was accompanied by a shortening of the contract term such that there was no change in the total contract quantity of gas.
Energean now has firm GSPAs for the supply of 5.0 Bcm/yr of gas into the Israeli domestic market, excluding the contingent GSPAs that have been signed with I.P.M Beer Tuvia (0.4 Bcm/yr) and Or Power Energies (“Or”) (0.7 Bcm/yr).
