Petrogas Company pumps around 350,000 tons of butane per month into the Egyptian local market, a source at the company told Amwal Al Ghad.

The company is committed to cover the local market’s butane demands all year round, with the support of local refineries and 150,000 warehouses in the company’s premises that work on filling butane cylinders.

Petrogas is expanding its storage warehouses near manufacturing areas in different cities and governorates, as the sector tries to cover its increasing local demands, boost production and decrease imports, the source explained.

The Egyptian oil and gas sector fills between 1 million and 1.1 million butane cylinders everyday in the local market, especially in winter when butane consumption increases.
