Fixing the pipeline that transports natural gas to Israel will take a long time, said an official with Gasco, the Egyptian company that operates the pipeline.
Tuesday's blast caused huge losses and a lot of damage to the Taweel station, the source said.
The most recent explosion was the fourth attack on the pipeline since February.
North Sinai's local market wasn't affected by the blast, because the station that provides gas to Arish and central Sinai is located far from Taweel station, the source said.
