Egypt and Israel are working on plans to expand the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF) into energy security, electricity infrastructure and emissions controls.
Israeli and Egyptian ministers have met to talk about a proposed pipeline from the Leviathan field to LNG plants.
Israel will sell gas to the Gaza Strip, under a deal involving the European Union and Qatar.
A number of states have signed an agreement formalising the East Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF).
The proposed East Mediterranean gas pipeline will be “impossible” without consent from Turkey, according to Northern Cyprus’ Prime Minister Ersin Tatar.
Israel has approved permits to export gas to Egypt, from offshore fields. First exports are expected in January.
