Tamar Partners, Gazprom Agree to Join Forces to Export Liquefied Gas

The agreement, which comes after a year of negotiations, calls for Gazprom to oversee annual sales of 3 million tons of LNG, or about 4.2 billion cubic meters, over 20 years.

Delek Drilling, a partner in the Tamar natural gas field, said Tuesday that Russian gas giant Gazprom had agreed in principle to finance an offshore liquefied natural gas facility and to sell LNG to customers abroad.
