Highlights

  • Egypt aims to achieve 42% of renewable in its power mix by 2030.
  • The power sector will not be opened to private investors until 2025 and the IPO program for state-owned oil and gas companies has been delayed.
  • EEHC, a state-owned utility, is the main power generator and has a monopoly over transmission and distribution.
  • Dragon oil targets a production of 300 kb/d of oil by 2026, i.e. the equivalent of half of 2022's total output.
  • Gas production, which had risen very rapidly from 2015 to 2021, dropped by 8% in 2022.
  • The power mix is dominated by gas (88%).
  • Egypt extended the plan to end electricity subsidies until 2024-25.
  • Electricity prices decreased by 20% in 2022.
  • Power consumption has increased by around 4%/year since 2020.
  • Around 60% of the gas is used for power generation.
  • Construction of units 1 to 3 of the El Dabaa nuclear power plant has started.The country aims to become an energy hub, with a strong focus on green hydrogen.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Two ministries share the main responsibility for the energy sector. The Ministry of Petroleum & Mineral Resources (MPMR) oversees the hydrocarbon sector and holds participation in state-owned oil & gas companies.

  • Energy Companies

    Oil:

    The sector is dominated by national oil company EGPC (Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation), which operates either directly or through different subsidiaries.

  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Gas production dropped by 8% in 2022 to 65 bcm, after a rapid rise (11%/year) to 70 bcm following the commissioning of the Zhor field in 2017. Egypt is the second largest gas producer in Africa after Algeria, surpassing Nigeria since 2016. The Mediterranean Sea represents the largest share of gas production with 62%, followed by Nile Delta with 19% and the western desert with 18%.

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    In 2019, Egypt introduced a fuel price indexation scheme. As a smoothing mechanism, the formula caps the quarterly change in retail prices from movements in variable cost at 10%. To contribute to finance the cost of the pandemic, in 2020, the country imposed a development fee on gasoline and diesel fuel.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita stands at 0.88 toe in 2022, including 1 509 kWh of electricity.

    Total energy consumption increased slightly in 2022 after a strong rebound in 2021 (+7%). Previously, it had remained roughly stable over 2017-2020 and increased by around 4%/year between 2013 and 2017.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Electricity:

    Egypt aims to boost its capacity by up to 30 GW by 2025, 8 GW of which should come from renewables. EEHC plans to add 13 GW of thermal capacity totalling US$20bn in investments between 2022 and 2027.

    In 2016, the Ministry prepared a long-term strategy aimed at investing up to US$135bn to provide 51 GW of electricity until 2035.
