Report summary

In November 2012, Egypt launched a tender to import LNG. The country needs imports to meet a supply shortfall, brought about by soaring domestic demand and production which is unlikely to increase significantly through the remainder of the decade. There has been a sharp drop in deep water exploration and development activity since the 2011 revolution and Egypt's fiscal situation is being undermined by inefficient subsidies in the domestic economy.
