Tarek El Molla

Investment by international oil companies reached USD 10 billion so far in FY2017-18, Oil Minister Tarek El Molla said in an interview with Al Borsa. This will likely increase, as the ministry plans to issue exploration tenders, including in the East Mediterranean and in the Nile Delta region sometime in 2H2017-18, said El Molla. The ministry plans to float tenders in the West Mediterranean once seismic mapping of the area is complete and a marketing strategy for the field has been developed. He added that the Red Sea and South Egypt areas will also see tenders for the very first time once geological data has been collected.
