Background

With access to significant oil and gas reserves and surrounded by 2000 kilometers of coastline, along with 19 petroleum ports, Egypt is strategically positioned to become a regional energy hub. To realize this potential, the Egyptian government, through the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, recently launched a modernization strategy that aims at boosting annual output by increasing the capacity of its major refineries, as well as developing and expanding the country’s petroleum ports. The plans involve expanding piers, deepening ports and significantly expanding storage capacity along the coast.

Similar to the Suez-Mediterranean pipeline, which is responsible for transporting 120 million tons of crude from the Gulf to the rest of the world, Egypt is focused on the transit of natural gas and petroleum products for export by connecting its existing 9,500 km of pipelines to its ports. As an industry leader, U.S. companies have cutting-edge solutions that can support the Egyptian government’s ambitious $8 billion investment strategy to revitalize its oil and gas sector.
