CAIRO, Production from Egypt’s giant Zohr offshore gas field has risen to 2 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d), according to Egyptian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tariq Al-Mulla.

Italian energy company Eni, which began production from Zohr last year, said in July that it expected capacity to reach 2 bcf/d this month.

Egypt’s petroleum ministry said on Friday that $7.7 billion has been invested in Zohr. It is aiming to attract about $10 billion in foreign investment in the oil and gas sector in the fiscal year that began in July, according to Reuters.
