National Pipelines Get Major Efficiency Boost

During the general assembly of the Petroleum Pipeline Company (PPC), Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla has confirmed that the national oil transport network, which represents the main arteries for supplying the country with energy, has witnessed great interest in strengthening and raising the efficiency of its lines that transport crude oil and petroleum products to refining and distribution areas to consumers.

El Molla explained that the impact of developing network lines is significant on the speed and efficiency of meeting local needs for petroleum products and fuel.

The minister stated that overcoming the challenges related to supplying the local market with butane came about by maximizing and doubling the infrastructure of the trading, transport and storage network for butane, to become six points to receive quantities of butane at ports, trade them and transport them to consumption areas instead of two points previously.

El Molla confirmed that the New Alamein area is currently witnessing the completion of the implementation of the new area for storing and trading petroleum products. It is planned that it will enter service in the summer of this year after the completion of the works and the project of a line to transport petroleum products from the MIDOR refinery in Alexandria to the Hamra Petroleum Port in El Alamein, with a length of 145 km. This will serve the economic, industrial and urban development efforts that were launched by the Egyptian state under the guidance of the political leadership in New Alamein.

The Minister also directed the speedy completion of the implementation of the new line from the Sokhna area to the Ajroud area in Suez, the first phase of which was completed with a length of 35 km, and the second phase with a length of 65 km is being implemented in order to trade and transport crude oil through linking the area of ​​the petroleum products trading center in Sokhna, and the infrastructure in the Suez Petroleum Region, which maximizes the added value of the infrastructure.

For his part, Nabawi Mahmoud, PPC’s Chairman, reviewed the features of its ambitious plan to complete new projects to strengthen and raise the efficiency of the national oil transportation network during the fiscal year 2024/25.
