The Egyptian ministry succeeded in operating eight new projects in fields of oil refining, with investments of $5bn, as part of a strategy launched in 2016 to develop the petroleum refining industry and increase its production capacities to reduce imports.

The strategy’s success led to doubling the domestic production of petrochemical materials to more than 4.3 million tons annually by the end of 2021/2022, compared to 2.1 million tons in 2015/2016, following the expansions that were added in 2016 and 2017 with a total investment of about $4bn.
