    Enhancing Infrastructure for Deep Water Gas Pipelines

    Tuesday, 6th October 2020

    With natural gas becoming a topic of increasing interest, it is only expected that the infrastructure is revised and/or enhanced to further develop new projects. In fact, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoP) aims to expand the capacity of national gas grid over the coming years. Already, Egypt has successfully managed to increase the total grid length by 4,820 km over the course of 23 years. However, with Egypt striving further to be the region’s natural gas hub, it is important to ensure that the technical elements of pipelines – especially deep water pipelines – are at their prime capacities too.

    The Making of A Multilateral Gas Hub

    Tuesday, 6th October 2020

    It is often said that multilateralism is key to advance regional as well as global energy goals. When the East Mediterranean gas saga began to unfold a decade ago, a regional accord had to be struck and multilateral agreements were necessary in order for a gas hub to be conceived. An increasing number of cooperation opportunities were put on the table; from pipelines to “pipedreams”.

    Natural Gas: The Doorway to Green Energy

    Tuesday, 6th October 2020

    Recently, several oil companies have announced their plans to turn their oil business green in the upcoming years. The transition, for the oil and gas industry, from the currently normalized way of work to an environmentally friendly industry, is not easy, nor is it going to be smooth. However, going green should be on the horizon, especially after 175 countries, Egypt included, have signed the Paris Agreement Act. The Paris Agreement Act addresses climate change and deals with the problem of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The oil and gas industry should align with the United Nations’ (UN) sustainable plan; which poses the question: could natural gas be the stepping-stone of a better green future?

    THE EMGF: Navigating Choppy Waters

    Tuesday, 6th October 2020

    With the Eastern Mediterranean home to over 70 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas discovered since 2009, its commercial potential is undeniable. As large swathes of these reserves are located offshore, production costs are naturally higher. Thus, the challenge that faces Eastern Mediterranean gas producers is identifying markets where gas extraction can be commercially viable.

    A Deeper Understanding of The Offshore Nile Delta: Organic Geochemistry of Condensates and Natural Gases

    Tuesday, 6th October 2020

    The natural gas potential for Egypt in the offshore East-Mediterranean region is undeniable and accounts for about 60% of Egypt’s 223 billion cubic feet (bcf) of proven natural gas reserves and nearly six million barrels of natural gas liquids, according to data from a recent study . One of the most prolific concessions is the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) concession with extensive commercial production. Despite years of gas and condensate discoveries that have been achieved in the deep ultramarine Nile Delta Basin of northern Egypt, the genetic origin and formation mechanisms of these hydrocarbons still remain largely unidentified.
