The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources is undertaking a presidential directive to increase the number of car stations that provide natural gas to 1,000, to be distributed across all governorates in Egypt - even as far as the New Valley governorate. About 550 natural gas stations have already been set up, with the rest to be implemented by the end of March 2022.

These efforts are part of a wider campaign to promote the use of natural gas, with a fleet of natural gas-powered buses coming to Egypt in 2022, and green incentives in place to get people to replace their petrol-powered vehicles with natural gas-powered ones.
