It was a joyous moment to remember for the residents of El-Qal’a Village in Qena Governate as Modern Gas lit the first natural gas flame for one of the village’s housing units.
This came after the completion of the gas filling in El-Qal’a, which is located in Abu Tesht city. It is part of the first phase of the presidential initiative Haya Karima (‘Decent Life’) and the national project to develop the villages of the Egyptian countryside.
The company further built an inter-pressure network with a length of 1,724 meters, an operating pressure of 7 bar, a gas regulator with a capacity of 1,000 cubic meters/hour, and a low-pressure network, with an operating pressure of 100 mm bar, with lengths of 6,573 meters, including house branches.
Modern Gas appealed to the citizens in the village of El-Qal’a to contract quickly to deliver gas to their housing units as soon as possible to ensure that the people of the village benefit from this civil service and the easy procedure to pay the delivery cost in installments on the consumption bill.
It is worth noting the importance of the initiative launched by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources to pay in installments the cost of citizens’ contribution to delivering gas to their housing units on the consumption bill at EGP 30 pounds a month for six years without interest in new cities and regions that receive gas for the first time.
Thus, natural gas has been operated for 10 villages in Qena Governorate within the presidential initiative Haya Karima, and implementation is underway in other villages upon completion of the sewage projects, where work is being done in more than one sector at once.
