New Energy research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research
[ClickPress, Tue Jul 19 2016] Pledged investment in upstream developments and LNG imports will be crucial to meeting gas demand over the next five years, while t he Zohr discovery could solve Egypt's gas challenges in the long term. Policy slippage with subsidy reform and payment schedules to oil and gas companies, pose the largest risk to slowing the positive momentum.
We highlight the following trends and developments in Egypt's oil and gas sector:
The Egyptian government continues to struggle with debt repayments to international oil companies with dues slipping from USD3bn in December 2015 to USD3.2bn in March 2016.
The oil ministry is to pay Shell/BG some USD400mn of its over USD1bn recievables by end 2016 to incentivise investment in WDDM phase 9b.
The Zohr development is on first priority fast-track with Eni still targeting first production from the initial phase in late 2017. Civil works have reportedly begun.
BP's West Nile Delta project (Taurus/Libra) also has fast-track status, targeting start-up of the 12bcm project in early 2017.
