Delek Fuel Company Ltd., or “Delek Israel” is Israel’s first fuel company, established in 1951. Delek is a fuel distributor controlling 20% of the gas stations market with over 240 fuel stations on both sides of the Green Line. 

The company has 11 gas and service stations across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem and two more in the occupied Syrian Golan. These are positioned in and around illegal Israeli settlements including: Giv’at Ze’ev, Mishor Adumim industrial zone, Gush Etzion, Kokhav Ya’akov, Talpiot East, the French Hill and Katzrin.

In 2013, the company won a tender for providing refueling services to the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israeli army over the course of three years. In 2016, the Israeli Ministry of Defense was considering a renewal of the agreement for the next two years.

Delek won a number of Israeli governmental tenders for fuel and fuel supplement provision. In 2014, Delek won a NIS 4 million tender with the Israeli Ministry of Public Security and the Israeli police for the provision of fuel and fuel supplements.

In 2016, Delek signed a NIS 25 thousand agreement with the Israeli Ministry of Public security and the Israeli police for the provision of fuel for the naval patrol.

Delek Group, Delek Israel’s parent company, is involved in extraction of natural gas from disputed maritime areas. The Group, in partnership with Nobel Energy, was involved in extracting gas from the Noa field and the Mari-B field, discovered in 1999 and 2000 respectively, which border Palestinian territorial waters.

Delek Group was part of a conglomerate of companies who discovered the Leviathan and Tamar natural gas fields in the Mediterranean field. Delek Group, through its fully owned subsidiary Delek Drilling LP, holds 22.7% interest in the drilling at the Leviathan field. Leviathan is located approximately 81 miles off Haifa. Both fields are within close proximity to disputed maritime areas with Lebanon.
