Other things we’re keeping an eye on this morning:

- UK-based SDX Energy announced a gas discovery at an exploration well in its South Disouq concession. The well will start contributing to production in June.
- US railway equipment provider Wabtec plans to make an offer to supply Egypt with the world’s first battery-powered electric freight trains, which Wabtec unveiled last year. The US railway equipment provider is already supplying the Egyptian National Railway (ENR) with 100 new locomotives at an estimated cost of EUR 248 mn.
