The minimum investment is 43 million dollars to drill eight wells, with a signature grant of 11 million dollars, according to the statement.

The deal brings the number of petroleum deals that Egypt has signed with investors in the past four years to 61, with a minimum investment of about 6 billion dollars.

Egypt aims to become a regional hub for the trade of oil and liquefied natural gas after major discoveries were made in recent years, including the Zohr gas field in the Mediterranean which holds an estimated 30 trillion cubic feet of gas.
