Shell is studying the potential of importing natural gas from Cyprus for the liquefaction plants in Egypt during the next period, Amwal El Ghad reported.

Shell’s Deputy Chairman, Moataz Darwish, said on the sidelines of Al Ahram’s Energy Conference that his company owns 35% of the Aphrodite gas field in cooperation with Nobel Energy and other companies.

He pointed out that the company aims to participate in the bid rounds that will be offered in the petroleum sector during the upcoming time to capture more concessions for more oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) activities.
