"Under the agreement, OCI will start three projects -- one in the north coast and two in the Greater Cairo area -- with an expected value exceeding LE600 million ($104.2 million), the company said in a statement.

With this deal, PHD will be able to simultaneously work on its19 existing projects, as well as begin work on nine new ones. Working with OCI, Egypt's top contractors, provides PHD immense flexibility and gives it a huge advantage as it strives to fulfil its business commitments.
