Five international oil companies will take part in the planning of the event, according to Egyptian Oil Minister Sameh Fahmi. In addition, over 100 international firms and 3,000 industry experts will attend the fair.
The event is expected to promote the county’s oil industry by sharing expertise on production, exploration and marketing methods. It also aims to attract foreign investments to Egypt’s growing petrol and petrol-related industries.
