Petroleum Minister Tareq el Molla has unveiled a number of projects meant to upgrade the efficiency of the national gas grid as production from the Eastern Mediterranean fields continue to take an upturn.
The plant's output will be used to fuel ships.
A circulated letter dated to Feb. 8 addressed Egyptian officials stating that several vehicle manufacturers producing vehicles circulating in Egypt are faced with an increasing number of claims from owners and operators which appear related to the poor quality of petrol marketed in Egypt.
“Egyptian fuel is a local product, and it is produced from Egyptian refineries, and manganese, if it is placed, will harm the refining equipment and speak malfunctions,” Abdelaziz added, in a TV interview.
Abu Dhabi police announced that the fire had been contained, and that the victims are two Indians and a Pakistani, as reported by Sky News Arabia.
The capacities of the petroleum product lines increased by 90 percent, at 122 million tons annually, and an 85 percent increase in the ports’ capacity, 45 percent in the storage capacities of petroleum products.
Mulla noted in a panel discussion held by the Egyptian Petroleum Association that Octane 80 is no longer considered a good-quality fuel.
The center in a statement said that it has contacted the Ministry of Local Development which denied the reports and said they were inaccurate.
Egypt's Fuel Automatic Pricing Committee (FAPC) said the per-liter prices of 80-octane, 92-octane, and 95-octane gasoline will be sold at LE 6.50, LE 7.75, and LE 8.75, respectively.
Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek al-Mulla stated that Egypt will not need to import liquid fuel by 2023.
During a meeting with Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled el-Anani Wednesday, el-Molla said the new drive will be effective as of Jan.21 till the end of 2021.
Ministry of Local Development revealed an enlarged plan was presented by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly to convert 2,300 public buses in Cairo and Alexandria over five years.
Shaker explained that, within 4 years, 28 thousand megawatts were added, through a plan that relied on 3 axes, namely the construction of new stations, the development of existing stations, and the maintenance of stations.
Egypt's Fuel Automatic Pricing Committee (FAPC) has decided at its meeting held after the end of September to keep gasoline and diesel prices in the local market unchanged till December.
In spite of the increasing care given to renewable energy, particularly solar and wind, bioenergy is still overlooked.
Molla said in a statement that the total number of cars that have been converted since the start of activity has reached about 320,000 cars.
Additionally, crude oil imports have amounted to $119.93 million in April, compared to $227.33 million in April 2019, with a noticeable decline of about $107.940 million.
Diesel fuel prices also remained untouched at LE 6.75 per litre.
Egypt spent LE 60.1 billion on fuel subsidies in the same period a year earlier.
Egypt plans to cut spending on fuel subsidies by 47% in its 2020/21 budget to 28.193 billion Egyptian pounds ($1.8 billion), an explanatory note for its draft budget published on Tuesday showed.
