Israel’s Delek Group Ltd. succeeded on May 30 in its pursuit to buy Chevron’s oil and gas fields in the British North Sea with a $2 billion deal for the assets.

Ithaca Energy Ltd., an affiliate of Delek, said May 30 that it had reached an agreement with Chevron Corp. to acquire Chevron North Sea Ltd., which operates the U.S. oil major’s portfolio in the U.K. North Sea. The company had previously been reported to have made an offer for the assets roughly a month ago.
