07:18 EDTNBLNoble Energy working to resolve regulatory matters with Israeli government
Noble Energy said in a regulatory filing that it continues to work to resolve regulatory matters with the Israeli government, a key step to enable the sanction of certain future development projects in Israel. On June 25, the Israeli Security Cabinet unanimously adopted a decision that empowers the Government of Israel to exempt certain arrangements from the provisions of the Israeli Restrictive Trade Practices Law 1988. This decision was followed on June 28, with a decision by the government of Israel to assume the authority of the Minister of Economy to exercise the rights granted to him under the IRTPL to exempt certain arrangements from the provisions of the IRTPL. It is expected that the Israeli government will publish for a public hearing a comprehensive framework that will address and clarify many of the outstanding regulatory issues facing the Company and its partners in developing their offshore assets. As stated above, the publication of the Framework is only an initial stage and a final decision is subject to the outcome of the public hearing and any legal challenges that may be brought against the decision in the Israeli courts. Therefore, there can be no assurances as to when or if the decision will be finalized or as to the terms thereof if finalized.

Rosneft and BP announced the signing of "several agreements strengthening the long term strategic relationship between the two companies."
