JNS.org – An Italian energy company has announced the discovery of a “supergiant” natural gas field near the coast of Egypt.

According to the Italian energy firm Eni, the gas field could hold as much as 30 trillion cubic feet of gas, which is the equivalent of 5.5 billion barrels of oil.

The gas company said that the Zohr field “could become one of the world’s largest natural-gas finds” and could help meet Egypt’s gas needs for decades to come.
