Description

Under the patronage of H.E Eng. Sameh Fahmy the Minister of Petroleum, Egypt

Due to Major recent discoveries, Natural Gas is likely to be the primary growth engine of Egypt's energy sector for the foreseeable future.

Natural Gas Distribution Summit shall discuss about predominance of Natural Gas as a fuel for city energy purposes internationally, due to below reasons.



Firstly, Natural Gas is a more economical alternative
For industrial customers Natural Gas offers a 20% cost benefit in energy terms
Natural Gas is a 'clean' fuel. When Natural Gas burns it creates lesser pollutants as compared to traditional fossil fuels
And finally, natural gas as a fuel is extremely efficient, when the entire cycle of producing, processing, transporting and using energy is considered, natural gas is delivered to the consumer with a "total energy efficiency" of about 90 percent, compared with about 27 percent for electricity
WHY EGYPT?

Egypt was one of the leading countries which chose to utilize natural gas as an abundant, clean and friendly fuel in most of the major economic sectors since the early seventies and as a fuel for vehicles at the beginning of the nineties.

Egypt has very ambitious plans to increase 3.3 million existing customers to 5.5 million customers for City gas by 2012. It has 16,800 km City Gas pipeline, has 118 fuelling stations, 106,000 CNG vehicles.
