Israel Gas Panel Conclusions May Exclude Tamar, Ma’ariv Says

Proposals made by the government- appointed Sheshinski panel on changes to tax structure for gas and oil output may exclude or make exception for the Tamar gas field, Ma’ariv reported.

The panel may consider making an exception for Tamar so as not to delay the development of the gas field as Israel is likely to become dependent on a sole supplier from Egypt, the newspaper said, citing an unidentified person close to the panel.
