Hurghada's Resorts to be Fuelled with Natural Gas

Egypt's government will start pumping natural gas to over 50 resorts in the Red Sea city of Hurghada after it approved a request from the Egyptian Society of Touristic Investments, a business association promoting tourism and investment in the coastal area.

The touristic investment pressure group initially raised the issue during a meeting with the Red Sea Governor Mohamed Kamal back in March.

City Gas, the government's natural gas firm, has finalised plans to set up gas pipelines and enhance overall gas infrastructure in Hurghada, with an overall cost of LE23 million to be funded by the Housing and Development Bank, Kamal announced in a press conference on Saturday.

Hotels in the Red Sea resort depend on diesel fuel to produce electricity through privately owned generators.

Recent diesel shortages forced hotel owners to tap into the black market to buy fuel to run the generators at very high prices. This resulted in electricity blackouts and negatively affected tourism.
