Chile-based Enap Sipetrol is planning to expand its operations in Egypt by acquiring new concessions and increasing its oil and gas exploration efforts. This strategic move was discussed in a recent meeting between Egypt’s Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El-Molla, and key representatives from Enap Sipetrol, including General Manager Julio Friedmann and the Chief Executive of the company’s Egyptian unit, Denisse Abudinén.

Minister El-Molla highlighted Enap Sipetrol’s intention to boost production and inject additional investments into the Egyptian petroleum sector. This aligns with Egypt’s broader strategy to attract foreign investment and enhance its energy sector.

Enap Sipetrol has established a significant presence in Egypt, holding a 50.5% stake in the East Ras al-Qattara concession in the Western Desert and full ownership of the West Amer concession in the Eastern Desert. These assets currently yield a production capacity of about 10,000 barrels per day. To date, Enap Sipetrol’s investments in Egypt amount to $581 million.

Julio Friedmann reiterated the company’s commitment to Egypt, expressing optimism about expanding Enap Sipetrol’s business portfolio in the region. The company’s planned expansions are expected to contribute positively to Egypt’s oil production capabilities and economic growth.

By enhancing its operations, Enap Sipetrol aims to play a significant role in the development of Egypt’s energy sector, fostering stronger economic ties between Chile and Egypt. The company’s increased exploratory efforts and potential new concessions could unlock further opportunities for growth and production in previously untapped areas.

As Enap Sipetrol progresses with its plans, the industry will be watching closely to see the impact of these expansions on Egypt’s oil sector and the broader energy market.
