British oil company BP and Abdu Dhabi’s ADNOC announced their offer to take 50% in Israeli offshore natural gas producer NewMed Energy for around $2 billion.
The two giants said that they are to create new joint venture to focus on gas development in international locations, including the Middle East.
NewMed’s outstanding stock currently estimated at $US1.17 billion, with a value at US$3.94 billion.
NewMed Energy is a subsidiary of Delek Group, holding 45.34 per cent of the Leviathan Reservoir. Last year, Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Petroleum acquired a 22 % stake in Delek Drilling in the east Mediterranean Tamar gas field at about $1 billion.
