    Egypt’s Petrochemical Renaissance on The Horizon

    Monday, 15th July 2019

    As Egypt is becoming a regional energy hub, the petroleum sector also aims at increasing the added-value in natural gas and oil projects, as evident by the boom in the Egyptian petrochemical industry with many projects underway as part of the National Petrochemical Plan (2002-2022). The petrochemical sector accounts for about 12% of Egypt's total industrial production and contributes 3% of Egypt's Gross Domestic Product (GDP), according to the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI).
