The FTSE 250-listed oil and gas firm has previously noted the note offer will go towards, among other things, repaying existing debt.
iEnergean Israel Finance Ltd intends to offer the USD2.50 billion senior secured notes in four equal tranches maturing 2024, 2026, 2028, and 2031.
The 2024 notes will hold a fixed annual interest rate of 4.500%, while the 2026 notes have a fixed annual interest rate of 4.875%, the 2028 notes have a fixed annual interest rate of 5.375% and the 2031 notes hold a fixed annual interest rate of 5.875%.

The money will help "fund certain reserve account" as well as assisting with transaction expenses. It will be used for general corporate purposes as well, Energean said.
