The first natural gas flame has been lit within the first two households in the villages of Bahr Al-Baqar Martyrs 2 and Bahr Al-Baqar 4, in the center and city of Al-Husseiniyah in Al Sharkia Governorate, after being connected to the natural gas grid, according to a statement from the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources.
This comes as part of the first phase of the presidential initiative Haya Karima (“Decent Life”) and the national project for developing villages in the Egyptian countryside, the statement elaborated.
Modern Gas Company has completed the implementation of the inter-pressure network in the village of Shuhada Bahr Al-Baqar 2, with a length of 1,476 meters. In the village of Bahr Al-Baqar 4, an inter-pressure network with a length of 1,470 meters with an operating pressure of 7 bar was implemented.
Modern Gas Company’s Chairman Mohamed Kandil explained that it is working with the citizens of the two villages to expedite the contracting procedures for delivering gas to their residential units as quickly as possible.
Kandil highlighted the importance of the initiative launched by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources to allow the cost of this service to be paid in installments at a rate of EGP 40 per month for seven years without interest in new cities and regions that are receiving gas for the first time. There are plans to deliver natural gas to about 1,200 residential units in the two villages.
