Cyprus-Egypt Aphrodite Gas Field Lures Investors

February 11, 2019

NICOSIA – A deal between Egypt and Cyprus to develop the Aphrodite gas field off the island’s coast is drawing keen interest from international oil companies, Egypt’s Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla said.

In an interview with the Cyprus News Agency, he said the gas pipeline between the countries will see a commercial agreement coming that would be lucrative for the countries as part of the East Mediterranean Gas Forum.

He said there are political benefits with money being an equalizer and that with so many countries linked to the field’s findings that the multi-national aspects could show the world that the often volatile region is “the most ready option with the least risk” for gas supply of Europe.

As for the option of East Med pipeline between Cyprus, Greece, Israel and Italy, he said that the feasibility study for the project would take up to two years, “which in itself is a luxury the region can’t afford any more,” saying the Egyptian model is better.
