Petroleum and Mineral Resources Minister Tarek el Molla said that pumping natural gas began from Zohr field to the new station in Port Said's el Gameel area where the gas is treated and pumped to the national natural gas network.
The initial production rate from gas will reach 350 million cubic feet daily.
Molla said that the first phase of the project will be finalized in June 2018 where the production will hit more than one billion cubic feet daily, said a statement issued by the Petroleum Ministry on Saturday 16/12/2017.
This will contribute to achieving self-sufficiency from natural gas and reduce importation, he said.
The second phase of the project will be finalized at the end of 2019 where production is expected to reach 2.7 billion cubic feet daily, Molla underscored.MENA
