The most important petroleum projects to preserve the environment and reduce emissions x 9 information


The strategy of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, launched in 2016, aims to implement projects aimed at improving and preserving the environment and working to achieve sustainability, reduce emissions and costs and improve energy efficiency. The oil and gas industry system in Egypt has succeeded in implementing several projects that have a positive impact on the environment. The following is the most important information It was like this..

1- Implementation of several projects that have a positive impact on the environment, which have resulted so far in reducing emissions amounting to about one million and 347 thousand tons of carbon dioxide.

2- The projects include thirteen projects related to the recovery of Zero Flare gas in companies (Qarun / Agiba / Petrosilah / Assiut Petroleum Refining / Zeitco / Petrosnan / Burj Al Arab / Khaleda / Petroshad / Petrobel) with a total of 40 million cubic feet of gas per day to be recovered. Extracting butane and heating it to operate generators and furnaces instead of diesel.

3- These projects achieve environmental returns represented in reducing emissions resulting from burning them with the flame, and economic returns through the savings resulting from the use of the flare gas recovered in operation instead of diesel.

4- 88 low-cost projects were implemented to improve energy efficiency in 31 companies.

5- These projects succeeded in reducing electricity consumption, reducing energy consumption, improving operating efficiency and controlling operating conditions with compressors, furnaces, boilers and steam systems.

6- In addition to installing and operating solar energy cells in buildings and fields in 21 companies, with a capacity of 1,350 kilowatts.

7- Within the framework of the presidential initiative (a decent life), the implementation of projects to deliver natural gas to the villages and hamlets most in need was launched in January 2021, and that the natural gas networks were implemented in these villages after completing the completion of the sewage networks in the villages that did not enter the gas, and it is targeted to implement the structure Infrastructure of gas networks for more than 1,450 villages. During the first phase, natural gas was connected to 118 villages, and ground networks work is underway to deliver gas to 515 other villages, in addition to including 796 villages in the gas delivery plan following the implementation of sewage connections to them.

8- The number of housing units to which natural gas has been connected through the initiative and the national project to deliver natural gas to homes has reached more than 13.5 million housing units so far.

9- The state’s efforts and presidential mandates issued to motivate citizens to convert their vehicles to work with natural gas as fuel, resulted in an increase in the demand for converting cars to work with natural gas, which resulted in converting 472,000 cars to work with compressed natural gas since the start of the activity until now, and doubling the supply stations with natural gas as fuel within a year And a half to more than three times what it was.
