We know that gas politics was behind the coup in Egypt. This just confirms it. ENI said in a statement that a gas discovery could hold a potential 30 trillion cubic feet of gas in an area of about 100 square kilometers. It is said this could be one of the world’s largest natural gas reserves. That this has just been announced should not deflect us from the considered assumption that it was known about before the coup, at the time of Morsi’s government.
