A number of states have signed an agreement formalising the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF).
Egypt, Israel, Italy, Greece, Jordan, Cyprus and the Palestinian Authority signed up to the plan. “This is a historic day for the gas industry in the region,” said Egyptian Minister of Petroleum and Natural Resources Tarek El Molla during a webinar.
