BG Group today announced that it has signed agreements with Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) and Petronas for the export of natural gas via the SEGAS LNG plant located in Damietta, Egypt.

The gas supply will come from the BG Group-operated Scarab Saffron fields in the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) Concession, offshore the Nile Delta. Commencing in the first quarter of 2005, BG Group and its upstream partners, EGPC and Petronas will toll approximately 225 mmscfd of export gas through the SEGAS LNG plant for the first four years of the five year contract and approximately 150 mmscfd in the final year. The final processing and shipping arrangements will be completed within the next few weeks.

Stuart Fysh, BG Group Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Mediterranean Basin and Africa, said:

“These agreements build on BG Group’s existing upstream and LNG positions in Egypt and create value by accelerating production from Scarab Saffron and increasing BG’s LNG exports which have exposure to international gas prices. BG’s purchase of LNG produced at Damietta - approximately 0.7 million tonnes per year - confirms BG Group’s position as Egypt’s largest LNG buyer.”

“These agreements once again demonstrate BG Group’s ability to create value through the natural gas chain by connecting our assets in Egypt to our market positions in the US and Europe.”

In addition to the export gas, Scarab Saffron will continue to supply a minimum of 475 mmscfd to Egypt’s domestic grid, lifting the contractual minimum Scarab Saffron off-take to 700 mmscfd.

Two wells will be added at Scarab Saffron and the facilities are being de-bottlenecked to enable sustained supply at higher production rates. It is anticipated that once de-bottlenecking is completed early in 2005, Scarab Saffron facilities will be capable of delivering of 800 mmscfd
