Key Market Trends

Refineries to Dominate the Market

  • Refineries sector has dominated the Egypt oil and gas downstream market in recent years and is expected to continue to do so during the forecast period too.
  • The Government of Egypt has adopted a strategic policy to expand the refinery infrastructure in the country, which includes the development of new refineries and upgradation of existing ones, which, in turn, is anticipated to proliferate the downstream industry in the country.
  • The refineries in Egypt are old and have remained underutilized for years. Therefore, improvement is key to the development of Egypt as the energy hub in the region. Currently, the refineries in Egypt, mostly process the crude oil that is domestically produced, and the refined products are sold to local markets.
  • The existing refineries in the country are required to be upgraded to produce high-end products, such as diesel, LPG, or gasoline. The current set up of the refinery plants in the country does not meet the EU market standards for vehicle fuels that ensure the emissions are within acceptable limits. Hence, the upgrading of refineries is likely to benefit future exports from the country.
  • In 2018, the state-owned oil company ENPPI, the Assiut National Oil Processing Company (ANOPC) signed a deal with Italy-based Technip to set up a USD 1.9 billion refinery complex, which is expected to be the largest in the country’s south. The project after completion is anticipated to process 2.5 million metric ton of heavy fuel oil mazut annually from the Assiut refinery that would produce over 400,000 metric ton of naphtha for high-octane gasoline, 1.6 million metric ton of Euro-5 diesel, 330,000 metric ton of sulfur, and 101,000 metric ton of butane.
