Shell Secures New Concession Deal for Egypt’s Red Sea

Zacks Equity Research: January 6, 2020

Royal Dutch Shell RDS.A along with another supermajor Chevron Corporation CVX and a state-owned entity Mubadala Petroleum clinched oil and gas exploration concessions in Egypt’s Red Sea. In its first ever round of licensing in the Red Sea, Egypt awarded Block 1 and Block 2 to Chevron and Shell, respectively. The third block was jointly conferred on Shell and Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Petroleum.

The exploration concession wins were in line with Shell’s growth commitment to cement its position offshore Egypt, mainly in the marine concession and deep-water regions, thereby supporting the government’s energy hub vision and increasing the LNG value chain.

The Red Sea contract awards will enable Shell to enhance its presence in the Egyptian market. The company first entered Egypt in 1911 and in 2011, it commemorated its centenary in Egypt. Most of its upstream operations mainly focus on the areas located in the Western Desert and Nile Delta.
