UK oil and gas BP’s chairman Bernard Looney said on Monday that the company plans to invest about $3.5 billion in Egypt over the next three years, through the fields of research, exploration, and development.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi received Looney on Monday in the presence of Tarek Al-Mulla, Minister of Petroleum, and Nader Zaki, the company’s Regional President for the Middle East and North Africa.
