The companies also signed a second deal to supply fuel oil storage capacity of 165,000 cubic meters in the Red Sea port of Ain Sokhna, a statement by the Petroleum Ministry said.

That deal may include re-exporting and supplying fuel oil to power plants in Saudi Arabia, meeting the needs of the Egyptian market and providing fuel to ships in the region, according to the statement.
