President El Sisi signals we’re moving on the Dabaa contracts

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi signaled yesterday that Egypt may soon sign final contracts for the Dabaa nuclear power plant. El Sisi stressed the issue during a meeting yesterday with the CEO of Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation Alexey Likhachev in Cairo, according to an Ittihadiya statement (pdf). Likhachev and El Sisi both “expressed their keenness” to launch the project as soon as possible. Last we heard, the Egyptian Council of State (Maglis Al Dawla) had received the final contracts and announced it would begin its review next month. Xinhua also has the story. I can haz tourists now?

El Sisi also sat down with Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi to follow up on work at the giant Zohr gas field, where production is on track to begin before year-end. The first phase of the Nooros field has also been completed, Descalzi told the president.
