Egypt is working with Eni SpA, operator of the giant Zohr gas field, to fast-track output and end the country's need to import liquefied natural gas as early as this year, Oil Minister Tarek al-Molla said.Zohr, the largest undersea gas discovery in the Mediterranean, will pump 1.7 billion cubic feet per day before the end of 2018, Molla said in a televised ceremony to inaugurate the field. Egypt is talking with Rome-based Eni to increase output to reach the 2019 production target this year instead, he said.Zohr's output is not only moving Egypt closer toward achieving energy self-sufficiency.
