Eni SpA discovered a “super giant” natural gas field offshore Egypt in what the Italian oil company said is the largest find in the Mediterranean Sea.

The gas discovery at its Zohr Prospect, in the deep waters of Egypt. The discovery could hold  a potential of 30 trillion cubic feet of lean gas in place covering an area of about 100 square kilometres. Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea.

“Egypt has still great potential, ” Claudio Descalzi, the company’s chief executive officer, said in the statement. “This historic discovery” will transform the energy industry in Egypt, he said.

Eni will immediately appraise the field with the aim of accelerating a fast track development of the discovery that will utilise at best the existing offshore and onshore infrastructures. Eni’s CEO, Claudio Descalzi, has recently travelled to Cairo to update Egypt’s President,  Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, on this important success, and discuss this discovery with the Prime Minister, Ibrahim Mahlab, and the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Sherif Ismail.

Israeli company, Delek Group and partners in the Tamar field signed an export contract with Egyptian buyers in March.
