Description

The Zohr gas field is an offshore natural gas field located in the Egyptian sector of the Mediterranean Sea. The field is located in the Shorouk concession, a concession with an area of 3,765 square kilometres (1,454 sq mi) which was won by Eni in 2013. The field is estimated to lie in an area of 100 square kilometres (39 sq mi) and is located at a depth of 1,450 metres (4,760 ft). The field was discovered in 2015 by the Italian energy company Eni and is the largest ever natural gas find in the Mediterranean Sea, almost twice the size of the nearby Leviathan gas field. The total gas in place in the Zohr gas field is around 850 billion cubic metres (30 trillion cubic feet). If confirmed, Zohr will almost double Egypt's gas reserves.
