CAIRO - 2 May 2022: Petroleum Minister Tareq el Molla has unveiled a number of projects meant to upgrade the efficiency of the national gas grid as production from the Eastern Mediterranean fields continue to take an upturn.
Molla, in statements Monday, put the value of investments in the new ventures at more than six billion pounds.
He cited a project to duplicate the Capital-Dahshour pipeline to extend over 67 kilometers. Another pipeline duplication should connect Sulaymaniyah and Northern Giza along 20 kilometers, the minister added.
Molla also touched upon a 15km duplication project through Sinai and a 135km duplication project between Abu Qorqas and Assiut.
Work is also underway to expand the Western Desert Gas Complex through adding a fourth line that would produce some 600 million cubic feet daily, the minister added.
Molla said all the new ventures are part of his Ministry's strategy to sustain natural gas supplies to the local market and to meet needs of citizens, particularly in the countryside.
