Alexandria is your opportunity for business!

In the energy industry, Alexandria, Egypt, is known for several key aspects:

Oil and Gas Infrastructure

Alexandria serves as a strategic location for Egypt’s oil and gas industry, with important infrastructure such as refineries, storage facilities, and distribution networks. The city’s port facilities play a crucial role in the import and export of petroleum products.

Exploration and Production

The waters off the coast of Alexandria are part of Egypt’s prolific Mediterranean Basin, which holds significant potential for offshore oil and gas exploration and production. Several international energy companies are involved in exploration activities in this region.

Energy Trade Hub

As Egypt’s primary seaport on the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria serves as a vital hub for the import and export of energy commodities, including crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum products. The city’s port facilities handle a substantial volume of energy-related cargo.

Renewable Energy Initiatives

In recent years, Alexandria has also seen growing interest in renewable energy projects, including solar and wind power. The city’s proximity to abundant sunlight and coastal wind resources makes it conducive to the development of renewable energy infrastructure.

Research and Development

Alexandria is home to academic and research institutions focused on energy-related studies, including Alexandria University and the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute. These institutions contribute to the advancement of energy technologies and innovation in the region.

Sharm El Sheikh (“bay of the wise”) is also known as the “City of Peace” referring to the large number of International Peace Conferences that have been held there. Its strategic importance led to its transformation from a fishing village into a major port and naval base for the Egyptian Navy. Egyptian businessmen and investors, along with global investors contributed to building several mega projects, including mosques and churches. The city is now an international tourist destination, and environmental zoning laws limit the height of buildings to avoid obscuring the natural beauty of the surroundings.

The city experiences a subtropical arid climate. Temperatures are just short of a tropical climate. Typical temperatures range from 18 to 23 °C (64 to 73 °F) in January and 33 to 37 °C (91 to 99 °F) in August. The temperature of the Red Sea in this region ranges from 21 to 28 °C (70 to 82 °F) over the course of the year.

Sharm El-Sheikh boasts one of the largest and most impressive conference centers in the Middle East and Africa, which can be reached in minutes from The International Airport and features state-of-the-art facilities and technical services.

Opened in 2006, the SHICC’s elegant and architecturally-stunning buildings have hosted many of the region’s most prestigious events such as COP27.

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina Conference Centre (BACC)

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina Conference Centre (BACC) is a state-of-the-art meeting and exhibition facility and is an integral part of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina complex. It is located on the waterfront across from the Eastern Harbor and Silsilah Peninsula. The Conference Centre and the main Library are connected underground below the Plaza of Civilization.
The Bibliotheca Alexandria lies alongside the University of Alexandria Faculty of Arts campus, in Shatby, and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea along a substantial portion of its northern frontage. The design concept is a simple circle inclined towards the sea, partly submerged in a pool of water, the image of the Egyptian sun, that in contemporary terms will illuminate the world and human civilization. Moreover, an inclined roof allows indirect daylight and a clear view of the sea. Designed as an arrow, an elevated passageway links the University of Alexandria to the Corniche. The building is surrounded by a wall clad with Aswan granite engraved with calligraphic letters and representative inscriptions from the world civilizations.

Alexandria

Known as “The Pearl of the Mediterranean”, Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt, and is also the largest city lying directly on the Mediterranean coast. Alexandria is Egypt’s largest seaport, serving approximately 80% of Egypt’s imports and exports. The reason why we organize MOC in Alex is because of its importance as industrial centre because of its natural gas and oil pipelines from Suez.
Located at the meeting point of the three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe, Egypt has been the cradle of civilization since ancient times.
With an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern, its ambience and cultural heritage distance it from the rest of the country although it is actually only 200 km from Cairo, linked to it with by two major highways, the Agricultural Road and the Desert Road, and served by international airport.
