|Petition to the Israeli High Court on the Development of the South West Tamar Reservoir|
Tel Aviv, Wednesday July 23, 2014. On July 22, 2014, 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 (“the respondent”) to develop Tamar South-West (“Tamar SW”), 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.
The respondent's refusal to approve the development plan of Tamar SW is 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. 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.
