Casablanca, Morocco (ADV) – Egypt’s natural gas output has risen to 6.6 billion cubic feet per day after an increase in production at its mammoth Zohr offshore gas field, an energy official said on Saturday.

Output at Zohr rose to 2 billion cubic feet per day, the petroleum ministry said on Friday.

Egypt aims to be a regional hub for the trade of liquefied natural gas (LNG) after a string of major discoveries in recent years including Zohr, which holds an estimated 30 trillion cubic feet of gas.
