The agreement was signed between state’s General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and Apache Khalda Corporation LDC company.
This comes after the Egyptian parliament approved the decree.
Apache operates in Egypt through the Khalda Petroleum Company, a joint venture with the Egyptian General Petroleum Company.
