The Egypt Upstream Gateway will also be a platform to promote Egypt’s exploration and production potential worldwide.

The platform will leverage the GAIA digital subsurface platform and provide additional value-added solutions—enabled by digital technology and domain expertise—using the DELFI E&P cognitive environment capabilities and technologies.

Tarek El-Molla, minister of petroleum and mineral resources, Egypt, said, “Leveraging digitalisation to modernise the petroleum sector of Egypt has been a key focus of our modernisation programme of the oil and gas sector and a critical project for the country.

“The goal is to equally enhance the understanding of our subsurface offering, unlocking the full potential of our assets to meet our energy needs. In addition, the Egypt Upstream Gateway will provide a platform to attract new investments to Egypt from investors from all around the world through state-of-the-art bid round digital enablement. The Egypt Upstream Gateway reflects the progressive vision we have for Egypt’s Ministry of Petroleum digitalisation and will be a major enabler positioning Egypt as a modern East Mediterranean Hub.”

Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger, commented, “Schlumberger combines deep domain expertise with transformative digital technologies using the GAIA platform, which will enable us to enrich Egypt’s subsurface data and deliver the Egypt Upstream Gateway. This platform will accelerate Egypt’s discoveries, reduce uncertainty, mitigate risks and enable Egypt’s Ministry of Petroleum and its affiliates—EGPC, EGAS, GANOPE—to digitally showcase their assets to investors worldwide.”
