Currently, negotiations with BP are ongoing on technical and contractual points in order to finalize the contract to import 21 shipments of LNG.
This would conclude the signings of contracts with the winners of a $2.2 billion LNG supply tender.
Egypt already signed the deals with Trafigura for 33 shipments and Noble Energy for further 7 cargoes.
