Israel launches first offshore licensing round

Israel launches first offshore licensing round

Report summary

Israel is offering 24 offshore blocks in its first ever bid round. The blocks on offer in the gas prone Levant basin includes acreage near the giant Tamar and Leviathan discoveries as well as near the Egyptian maritime border, close to Eni’s Zohr discovery. We expect constrained demand in Israel and the lack of clear export routes to dampen investors' enthusiasm for the round, despite excellent prospectivity.
