The "Egypt Gas Puzzle" series was created by Gulfoilandgas.com to highlight the geopolitics of Egyptian Natural Gas development and to document a revisited strategy for monetizing gas discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean that includes the new Egypt. Reversing the Flow article was published on April 2nd, 2014, to explain how can Egypt's idle gas export infrastructure realize the energy security needs of Egypt and the region. It also suggested the most economic way for monetizing new gas discoveries offshore Cyprus via the "Hope pipeline".
