Egypt Extends National Gas Grid by 7,224 KM in 9 Months

As a part of the Hayah Karima (‘Decent Life’) presidential initiative, Egypt has worked at lightning speed to successfully connect 86 villages to the natural gas grid. Additionally, the main gas networks are currently being extended to serve about 476,000 customers in 180 villages.

Moreover, about 7,224 km of new networks were extended during the past 9 months of the current fiscal year (FY) 2021/22. There are also 1,185 villages included in the governmental sewage plan, to which gas networks will be extended after the full completion of the sewage services works.

These updates came during the meeting attended by Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla to discuss the executive situation of the national project to deliver natural gas to households, in light of the current challenges and their impact, and to develop the necessary solutions to overcome these challenges for the continuation of the project’s implementation according to the set timetables.

El Molla stated that the project to deliver natural gas to households achieves its national goals of providing sustainable fuel in homes to reduce the burdens of providing butane cylinders on the public budget of the state and citizens.

The meeting reviewed what has been achieved in the project in terms of delivery rates and the Hayah Karima initiative and the installation of prepaid gas meters, which have exceeded one million meters so far.
