In August 2019, Israeli energy company NewMed Energy, then known as Delek Drilling, announced agreements for negotiating engineering services for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility offshore Israel for gas from the Leviathan gas field. Delek is developing the basin offshore Israel, which has estimated resources of 21.3 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). It’s a joint venture with U.S. independent producer Noble Energy (39.66%) and Israeli firm Ratio Energy (15%). The project will allow Israel to become a gas exporter, according to researchers. The joint venture is negotiating with Belgian maritime service provider Exmar and Bermuda-based shipping company Golar LNG to enter into a binding long-term charter agreement with the winner to finance, build, operate and maintain the facility. The Flng terminal will process between 2.4 and 5 million tons per year of natural gas, to then be shipped worldwide via LNG vessels.[1]

In February 2021, Energy Voice reported that Delek Drilling was continuing to discuss potential collaboration with Exmar, although talks with Golar LNG had ended, and that the company was seeking to hire LNG expertise.[3]

In February 2022, Delek Drilling rebranded itself as NewMed Energy and released a new strategic plan including increasing its exposure to the LNG market.[4]
