The agreement will see Eni’s trademark used on the new filling stations, Egyptian Minister of Petroleum Tarek El Molla said.
The new stations are set to be constructed across the country, especially in Upper Egypt, with an aim to serve natural gas-powered vehicle, Al Ahram reported.
No financial information regarding the deal has been made public.
The agreement was signed by Gastec’s head, Abdel Fattah Farahat, Gastec’s Operations General Manager, Stefano Chesi, and Eni’s Chief Refining & Marketing Officer, Giuseppe Ricci.
The agreement comes as Gastec announced its long-term plans to spend around EGP 600 million to establish 50 integrated stations over the next five years.
The Egyptian firm will build three natural gas filling stations in Beni Suef, Qena and Sharm El Sheikh, Farahat said.
