These include an MoU between the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) and Shell Egypt to establish a framework for managing greenhouse gas emissions, and an MoU signed by EGAS, SeaSplit Technologies, and General Electric to decarbonize industrial activities along the Gulf of Suez.
Additionally, the Egyptian Liquefied Natural Gas Co., a Bechtel-led consortium, comprising the Engineering for the Petroleum & Process Industries (Enppi), Baker Hughes, and PETROJET signed an agreement to study the feasibility of recovering gas flares.
An agreement between the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), EGAS, and TotalEnergies will see the three evaluate the technical and economic viability of decarbonization solutions in the local petroleum sector.
An initial agreement was signed by EGAS, the Egyptian Petrochemicals Holding Company (ECHEM), and Japan's Toyota Tsusho Corporation to study the feasibility of a blue ammonia project.
