Egypt upstream fiscal summary

Egypt upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

Upstream licences in Egypt are awarded through licensing rounds under production sharing contract terms (PSCs). Within the PSC regime, signature bonus, production bonus, cost recovery ceiling, excess cost recovery share and contractor profit share are all biddable parameters. Royalty and income tax are paid by the state from its share of profits. The state does not have any equity participation within the PSC regime, but is able to exert significant control over the field developments through a 50% ownership in the joint venture operating company.
