Egypt Consumes 6 bcf/d of Natural Gas

Egypt is currently consuming around 6 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas, an official at the Egyptian Natural Gas Company (EGAS) told Amwal Al Ghad.

Out of this 6 bcf/d, electricity plants consume 3.9 bcf/d, according to the official.

Egypt’s demand for natural gas normally decreases during the winter as lower temperatures decrease the demand for electricity, according to Amwal Al Ghad.

Domestic production of natural gas has been rising. New output from the North Alexandria, West Delta, and Nooros fields has permitted Egypt to increase natural gas production to over 5.1 bcf/d, Amwal Al Ghad reports.

This output is expected to continue to rise as Egypt’s Zohr field comes online later this year.
