Technip, a French engineering and subsea oil and gas company, will further develop Egypt's West Delta Deep Marine project, located 95 km offshore Egypt in the Mediterranean.
Technip is to install a new gas pipeline and connecting it to two existing ones in the area, one of the ministry sources said.
