    • The article does not specify concessions or companies by name. It only states “Two of the four agreements are related to the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) for exploration in the Red Sea and Western Desert areas, while the other two are related to South Valley Petroleum Holding Company (Ganope).”
