  • Eitan Aizenberg, one of Ratio's founders, is the prospect generator of the Leviathan and Dolphin discoveries

Ratio held 100% interest in the Ratio Yam exploration areas and in 2007 invited its current partners to farm-in

The Leviathan field was discovered in late 2010

  • Located in the Rachel & Amit Licenses, approx. 135km west of Haifa, Israel in water depths of approx. 1,630 meter, and covers approx. 325 km2
  • Drill stem test confirms high quality reservoir with a single well capable of producing 250 mmcf/d
  • Completed two appraisal wells which validated the quality, quantity, continuity and extent of the field

domestic market

Power generation

  • New Capacity - 4,000 - 5,000 MW gas fired plants are expected to commence operations by 2017- 2018
  • Conversion of IEC’s coal fired plants to utilize gas -1,400 MW by 2017

Strong and growing demand

Industrial uses

  • Conversion of heavy industries’ production facilities burners to utilize gas
  • Development of new industries which heavily utilize gas

Forecastedsupply in 2013is 5.6 BCM (**)

Long term natural gas demand for power generation and industrial uses (*)

Forecasteddemand in 2015is 10 BCM (***)

  • Approx. 13 BCM in the year 2020 and 15 BCM inthe year 2025
  • Approx. 430 BCM during years 2016-2040

export projects

Growing Demand

2012 demand ~ 46 BCM ; 2020 forecast ~ 60 BCM


Gas supply diversification

In 2012, 75% of Turkey's gas was imported from Russia and Iran

Turkey is asignificantpotential marketfor piped gas

Potential Transit Hub from East to West

Several regional transmission lines are planned (TAP, TANAP)

Pipeline length

~ 400-450 kilometer from Israeli EEZ to south-east Turkey

Existing import gas pipelines and LNG Terminals

export projects1


Natural gas is required to feed-in two existing LNG facilities:

  • Damietta plant (5 mtpa) is idled due to lack of gas supply
  • Idku plant (7.2 mtpa) is operated in limited capacity due to reservoir performance

Egypt, Jordanand thePalestinianAuthority arealso potentialmarkets forpiped gas


Natural gas is required to mainly generate electricity

  • Gas supply from Egypt for power generation has been decreased from 3.1 BCM in 2009 to 0.8 BCM in 2011
  • Jordan has issued RFP for purchase of LNG in mid 2014 at Aqaba

Palestinian Authority

Palestinians seek electrical independence;

  • Currently, private company develops a 200 MW gas fired power plant to be located in West Bank

woodside transaction

Australia based Woodside has been selected as a strategic partner bringing-in LNG expertise

Woodside proposed to pay approx. $2.5 billion in return for acquiring 30% of the interests in the Rachel and Amit licenses

Ratio will sell 5% of the interest in the Rachel and Amit Licenses

Woodside brings Leviathan added values:

  • Experience in design, construction and operation of onshore LNG plants
  • Skills in shipment, trading, marketing and financing of LNG plants
  • Strong relations with Asian markets for the past 28 year
  • Extensive FPSO and LNG experience with capabilities in project integration

Expected Ratio's revenues from the sale ~$420M (Less overridingroyalties)

Woodside's Pluto LNG Plant Australia

export policy
  • Initial allocation of reserves for domestic use – 540 BCMfrom all reservoirs
  • Export of up to 50% from each reservoir exceeding 200BCM plus up to an additional 25% is permitted followingswap transactions
  • Onshore LNG facility / FLNG will be built in territoriescontrolled by the State of Israel, unless agreed in abilateral agreement between countries

Regulation sets the foundationsfor export

Leviathan has a potentialto export up to 400 BCM (~14 Tcf)

gal licenses

In 2010 Ratio obtained the Gal preliminary permit and in2012 completed the acquisition and processing of 3Dseismic survey in the Neta and Royee licenses

  • In November 2012 Edison International joined Ratio tooperate and further explore the assets. Edison holds20% of the interest in the licenses
  • In April 2013 the Oil Commissioner granted the licenseswithin the preliminary permit area
  • According to the Licenses terms:
  • Drilling prospect with resource estimate to be submittedto the Ministry by June 2014
  • First exploration well to be spud by April 2015
