Mulla: Egypt’s natural gas production rises to highest level in Sept.

CAIRO, Sept 20 (MENA) – Petroleum Minister Tareq el Mulla said that Egypt's natural gas production rises to its highest level in September, a matter that led to an increase in the use of natural gas in the local market after Egypt achieved a self-sufficiency in natural gas production.
In the past two years, natural gas industry greatly developed, the minister said, citing the export of Egypt's natural gas surplus and the development of value-added industries.
During the general assembly meeting of the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), the minister asserted President Abdel Fatah El Sisi's full support of the oil sector and his keenness on following up the implementation of natural gas projects in the country.
For his part, EGAS Chairman Osama el Bakly said
Egypt's natural gas production hits a record of 7.2 billion cubic feet in September.
