Zohr oil hits 3 bln feet a day

Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Wealth Tarek el Mulla on Wednesday 6/2/2019 said that the production of Zohr oil field will reach more than three billion feet per day in 2019.

At a meeting of the general assembly of PetroShrouk oil company, he added that what has been achieved in Zohr oil field is unprecedented in the history of the Egyptian gas industry, said a statement issued by the Petroleum Ministry.

Record figures of major gas discoveries are being realized, he noted, adding that these achievements are attributed to the support of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to the Egyptian oil sector.

Thanks to the output of Zohr oil field, Egypt has stopped its gas imports last year, he said, adding that self-sufficiency will save foreign currency.
