Egypt has signed nine oil and gas exploration agreements worth $1 billion with local and international companies. Exxon Mobil, Chevron and Total are among the signatories.

"Egypt seeks luring new international investments in gas and oil exploration, and concluding deals with big companies as a priority," remarked Minister of Petroleum Tarek Al Molla.

Developing many items of the oil deals has contributed a lot to boosting the competitiveness of Egypt as an attractive destination for investments amid stable economic conditions and reform, stated the minister.
