Royal Dutch Shell, Malaysia's Petronas, France's Engie and Egypt's two main state oil and gas companies, EGAS and EGPC, are all shareholders in the Idku plant.

CAIRO: Egypt exported 172.8 billion cubic feet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 45 shipments from its Idku plant in the 2018-2019 financial year, state-owned company EGAS said in its annual report.

Egypt became self-sufficient in natural gas in late 2018 and is seeking to become a regional hub for energy trading by liquefying gas and re-exporting it.

The oil minister said in March that Egypt was aiming to export 2 billion cubic feet per day by the end of 2019.
