Egypt increased its imports of butane to 167,200 tons in July 2017, a 1.21% year-on-year (Y-o-Y) increase from the 165,200 tons in July 2016, Egypt Oil & Gas reports.

Egyptian butane production dropped in July 2017 by 7.45% to 149,100 tons, compared to 161,100 tons during the same period last year, according to information released by the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).

Butane consumption fell to 308,100 tons in July 2017, 4.32% Y-o-Y decrease from the 322,000 tons of butane consumed in July 2016.

Butane consumption fell after the price for petroleum products was raised, the Head of the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), Abed Ezz El Regal, told Amwal Al Ghad last month.
