The Oil & Gas Year Egypt 2019 comes at a time when the country’s hydrocarbons industry is about to witness tremendous developments, dubbed a “golden era.” This year’s Egypt edition highlights the country’s recently achieved gas self-sufficiency and the government’s objective of turning Egypt into a regional hub for LNG trade, showcases the successful completion of recent bidding rounds and the plans in place to further intensify exploration activities, and promotes the ambitious new investments in the petrochemicals industry.
“When we state that we need to become a gas hub, we think not only about Egypt, but about our neighbouring countries too. We are not competing; we are integrating. We have the infrastructure, we have a big market and network, and we also need to integrate with our neighbours for the benefit of everyone.”
Osama El Bakly, Chairman of EGAS
