    Energean Oil & Gas , Athens, has received Israeli government approval to acquire 100% interests in offshore Karish and Tanin natural gas fields and expects to start production in 2020 ( OGJ Online, Aug. 19, 2016 ). The company is acquiring the interests from Avner Oil Exploration LP and Delek Drilling LP in a deal valued at $148 million.
