GASCO’s policy is a one-year term, with total sum insured exceeding 50 billion Egyptian pounds ($2.7 billion), sources with knowledge of the matter told Amwal Al Ghad on Sunday.

The eight bidders, seeking to win the policy are; Misr Insurance Company, Arab Misr Insurance Group – GIG, the Egyptian Takaful Property and Liability Insurance (EGTAK), Suez Canal Insurance, Iskan Insurance Company, Orient Takaful Insurance, Royal Insurance, and Mohandes Insurance, the sources added.
