Aggreko to power Egyptian gas project
Cairo, May 18, 2014
Aggreko, a global leader in temporary power and temperature control services, has signed a contract with German-based RWE Dea to deliver a 4 MW power plant to the Disouq onshore natural gas facility located in the Nile Delta in northern Egypt.
An international oil and gas company headquartered in Hamburg, RWE Dea AG has been operating in Egypt as an oil producer for nearly 30 years, with the Disouq project being the company's first natural gas development in the country.
Production at Disouq commenced in September 2013 and the project is expected to produce a total volume of approximately 11.4 billion cu m of natural gas.
The Aggreko installation will power operations across the entire site ensuring a constant and reliable power supply. The gas produced at the project will make a substantial contribution towards supplying the growing energy market in Egypt.
"We are delighted to be supporting industry in Egypt during this important period for the country," remarked James Shepherd, the managing director, Aggreko Southern and East Africa.
"Access to high-quality, reliable power will be vital in helping get local industry up and running, bringing jobs and prosperity to the people of Egypt. We see high potential in the local market and Aggreko will be investing to increase our presence in the country," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
