EGPC says Italy’s Edison will complete seismic survey of area around Zohr field next month

Italy's Edison will complete its seismic survey of the area surrounding Egypt's Zohr gas field next month, the head of Egypt's General Petroleum Corp (EGPC) told reporters on Tuesday.
"The discovery of the Zohr gas field helped accelerate the companies' research and exploration," Mohamed al-Masry said on the sidelines of a conference in Cairo. The seismic survey was previously expected to be completed after 1-1/2 years.
Al-Masry also said EGPC had met with ENI, which discovered the Zohr gas field in August, to negotiate the price of the gas that will be extracted.
"The price is linked to a price formula with a minimum of US$4 per million BTU and a limit of $5.88 per million BTU, and the price will not exceed that," he said.
