(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Partners in Israel’s Leviathan natural gas field have signed a non-binding letter of intent to supply the U.K.’s BG Group with an estimated $30 billion worth of natural gas for its facility in Idku, Egypt.

The preliminary agreement, announced Sunday, comes after supply agreements signed with Jordan and other local countries, making Israel a major local exporter of natural gas. Once the deal is signed and authorized, the natural gas will be sold directly to BG’s Egyptian facility, which has the necessary infrastructure to liquefy it.

BG will receive the gas via a special outlet that will be installed adjacent to the Leviathan field. An underwater pipe will connect the outlet to the BG liquefaction facility in Idku.
