Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea and will satisfy Egyptian natural gas demand for decades. On the basis of the data acquired in the well and available geophysical evidence, the field may have a potential of up to 850 billion cubic metres of gas in place and is therefore one of the largest gas discoveries in the world.
