The Egyptian Company for Natural Gas Distribution (Town Gas) delivered natural gas to 200,000 new customers from total of 300,000 customers, which are scheduled to be added during the coming two months, an official source in Town Gas said to Al Watan newspaper.
The source added that the company plans to deliver natural gas to several regions before the end of current year, such as Al Hawamdiya, Al Badrashin, and Atfih.
It is worth noting that the government facilitated the procedures of paying the gas entry fees, which lead to a boost in the number of subscribers.
Recently, the ministry of Petroleum had announced a governmental initiative to deliver the natural gas to houses for EGP 30 per month over six years, which will be added to the monthly consumption bill.
Late in August 2019, Town Gas reported that it successfully delivered natural gas to 150,000 housing units during the first half of 2019.
