DEFA halts Cypriot gas import bid process

Offshore staff

TEL AVIV, Israel – Cypriot state gas company DEFA has canceled a planned tender for supply of natural gas for electricity generation in Cyprus, according to Delek Group.

Delek subsidiaries, in partnership with operator Noble Energy, had proposed a pipeline from the Leviathan gas field in the deepwater Israeli sector as part of the tender.

However, DEFA opted for cancellation after failing to reach agreement with some of the bidders in the tender over gas supply terms.

Delek stresses that the partners in block 12 offshore Cyprus are maintaining continuing contacts with DEFA over supply of gas from the deepwater Aphrodite reservoir.
