Yitzchak Tshuva plans to sell 20% of the gas drilled from the “Tamar” gas field to Egpyt, according to a report in Calcalist.

Letters of understandings were signed, and official contracts are expected to be signed in six months.

This is the first export agreement with Egypt, and follows the export agreement signed a few months ago with Jordan.

Egypt is to receive 4.5 BCM (billion cubic meters) each year for 15 years. The deal is valued at 1.1 to 1.3 billion dollars a year for a total of around $20 billion dollars.

The “Tamar” gas field holds an estimated 320 BCM and is owned by Noble Energy (36%), Delek and Avner Drilling (31.25%), Isramco (28.7%) and Dor Gas (4%).
