Initial Zohr output to raise Egypt’s gas output to 5.5 bln cubic feet daily

Output from Egypt’s giant offshore Zohr gas field in the Mediterranean will raise Egypt’s natural gas production to 5.5 billion cubic feet per day from 5.1 billion daily, Petroleum Minister Tarek El Molla told Reuters on Sunday.

Discovered in 2015 by Italy’s Eni, the field contains an estimated 30 trillion cubic feet of gas.

Egypt’s own natural gas output rose to about 5.1 billion cubic feet per day in 2017 from 4.4 billion cubic feet in 2016 with the start of production from the first phase of BP’s North Alexandria project.
