Delek owner Yitzhak Tshuva promised Wednesday morning that natural gas will arrive as planned by 2013 from the Tamar offshore field.

That supply has become increasingly critical as the supply from Egypt has been disrupted. The Mari-B Israeli field which supplies 20% of the gas that produces electricity is expected to play out by 2013 and sooner if the Egyptian supply takes a long time to resume.  

Tshuva's Delek Energy had warned that the Sheshinski Committee recommendations had put that target date in doubt.
