Mohamed Saad El-Din, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Saad El-Din Group and the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Investor Association, announced the launch of the first operating trial of transporting natural gas by tankers, that came in alignment with the state’s plan to make the natural gas an alternative fuel for all industrial areas located far from the national gas pipelines, Al-Mal news website cited.

In February 2020, Gaston for Compressed Natural Gas, a subsidiary of Saad El-Din Group, announced the implementation of the first phase of the government’s plan with a total investment of EGP 150 million.

Abu Zenimah area is expected to receive about  60,000- 70,000 cubic meters of natural gas per day during the first phase of the project.
