Egypt Kuwaiti, Tri-Ocean Energy, Saudi Economic Development Co. and Hayel Saeed Anam Group agreed to start a 2.7 billion Egyptian pound ($453 million) project that will produce ammonium nitrate and nitric acid in the country’s eastern province of Suez. The companies established Egyptian Hydrocarbon with a capital of $150 million.
