“We provide Liquefied Natural Gas according to the global high standards of the modern technology and expertise to support the energy and the development of human life.”
In 1995, the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) signed a concession agreement with BG International Limited (BG) and Edison International (Edison) for exploration in the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) region in the North Eastern Mediterranean. Very successful drilling activity uncovered a world-class gas resource that carried substantially larger reserves than that the local market could absorb. As a result, in 2001, the concession agreement was amended to allow the partners to export gas as LNG. In January 2002, heads of agreement were signed with Engie (previously GdF) for the sale of 3.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG for 20 years. Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), BG Asia Pacific Holdings Pte Limited (an affiliate of BG International), Edison and GdF became the Sponsors of this new project and commissioned Bechtel to construct a single-train liquefaction plant matching the volumes to be sold to (Engie) GdF. Construction of the plant began in 2002 using the ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade Process. Later in the year, the WDDM owners negotiated the sale of the output of a second train, also with a capacity of 3.6 mtpa, to STASCO (Shell). Construction of Train 2 started 6 months behind Train 1. In 2003, Edison sold its share in Egyptian LNG and the upstream WDDM concession to a subsidiary of the Malaysian National Oil Company, PETRONAS (PICL Egypt), who brought extensive LNG experience to the project and the company.
Egyptian Liquefied Natural Gas (ELNG) is considered one of the most renowned companies specialized in liquefied natural gas on both the Egyptian and international levels. Located at Idku, 50km east of Alexandria, Egyptian LNG can accommodate an expansion of up to six trains in total with potentially different ownerships and sources of feed gas. Currently, two trains are up and running, each at a capacity of 3.6 million tones per annum. Egyptian LNG is Egypt's largest liquefied natural gas joint venture comprising of both local shareholders, such as (“EGPC”), (“EGAS”) and foreign shareholders, such as Royal Dutch Shell (previously BG), PETRONAS and TotalEnergies S.E (previously ENGIE), all of which are prominent international players in the industry.
