EGPC to Launch a New Exploration Tender

The Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) is planning to launch an oil and gas exploration tender before the end of 2017, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla told Amwal Al Ghad.

El Molla has also announced plans regarding the signing of contracts with Apache, Shell, and Apex as they were awarded a total of five concessions in the Western Desert.
