Egypt’s natural-gas discoveries over the last three years, mainly from the giant Zohr Field in the Mediterranean Sea has seen production rise to 7.2 billion cubic feet per day.
This is up from 6.8 billion during fiscal year 2018-19 and 3.8 billion cubic feet in 2012.
In 2015, the discovery of huge quantities of natural-gas became the largest-ever gas discovery in Egypt and the Mediterranean.
Zohr’s daily production is estimated at 30 trillion cubic feet. It exceeded three billion cubic feet in 2020, making up 40 percent of Egypt’s total gas output, according to previous statements by Petroleum Minister Tarek El-Molla.
Egypt plans to use its location on Europe’s doorstep to become a major supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the continent, which is transitioning away from other fossil fuels.
In addition to two LNG facilities, the nation has infrastructure for the transport and handling of natural gas, with a main network of 7,000km of pipelines, as well as a distribution network of 31,000km, and 29 gas-treatment plants.
