Cabinet denies importing amounts of natural gas

The Cabinet on Friday 24/01/2020 dismissed reports circulated on social media claiming that Egypt has imported natural gas to meet domestic shortage.

The Cabinet media center said it contacted the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources which denied the reports, affirming that Egypt has achieved self-sufficiency of natural gas since October, 2018.

Egypt has become a natural gas exporter in the final quarter of 2018, the ministry underscored.
