The Ministry said that the liquefaction plant in Damietta, since its restart in 2021, has exported 7.2 million tons of natural gas.

The ministry announced that about four million tons of liquefied natural gas were exported in 2022, which is the largest amount exported in the plant’s nearly 20-year history.

This makes it the top plant in Egypt in liquefied natural gas exports, the ministry said, adding it contributes to strengthening Egypt’s role as a regional energy hub in the Mediterranean region.
