Italy's Eni is focused on starting production at its giant offshore Zohr gas field in Egypt by the end of 2017. The field is expected to produce 2.5-3 billion cubic feet of gas per day when it reaches peak production in 2019. The second phase will see the addition of 16 wells to production by 2020.

Dubai Financial Group sold its 11.8 percent stake in Egyptian investment bank EFG-Hermes Holding to France's Natixis under a debt restructuring deal, its parent company said on Sunday. The sale was "consistent with the business plan for Dubai Group, which was agreed with its lenders as part of the restructuring agreement," Fadel al-Ali, Dubai Group chairman, said in a statement. The price of the transaction was not disclosed. Based on Thursday's closing price, the stake is worth around $107 million, according to Reuters calculations. Dubai Group completed a drawn-out restructuring of its $10 billion debt pile in January 2014, with banks extending repayment deadlines on loans so that the group could be given time to sell its assets to raise cash needed to fund the payments. As part of its restructuring deal, it recently completed the sale of a 48.4 per cent stake in Dubai-based Shuaa Capital to Abu Dhabi Financial Group (ADFG) for an undisclosed amount. Dubai Group was obliged to divest its holdings in EFG-Hermes, Shuaa Capital and Bank Muscat this year, al-Ali, who is also chief executive of Dubai Group's parent firm Dubai Holding, said in May.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is stepping up lending in a region where economic reformers haven’t exactly had the most success. Hoping to restore the confidence of foreign investors, Egypt announced an initial agreement Thursday to borrow $12 billion over three years from the IMF, joining Iraq, Tunisia, and Jordan in taking money from the Washington-based fund. Egypt’s programme is likely to see the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi move toward a more flexible exchange rate, rebuild foreign-currency reserves, and cut spending. The influx of capital offers an opportunity to restore economic stability in a region beset by political turmoil, terrorism, and the collapse in the price of oil, its most important export. While all the IMF borrowers except Iraq are fuel importers, they’ve received flows of aid and remittances from wealthy producers such as Saudi Arabia, which are now drying up. The fund faces many of the challenges it encountered when it lent to Egypt and other countries decades ago, such as poor governance and public resistance to belt-tightening. “The IMF is fighting an uphill battle,” said Jon Alterman, a former State Department official who’s now director of the Middle East programme at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “The events of the last five years didn’t convince Mideast leaders that the Washington Consensus was right. It deepened their suspicions of opening up systems, for fear that if you open up, you invite political instability.” The Washington Consensus, a term coined in 1989, refers to a mix of policies espoused by Washington-based institutions such as the IMF and World Bank that emphasizes budget cuts, open trade, and capital flows, and deregulation. The IMF, now under the leadership of Christine Lagarde, has softened its position on the need for budget cuts and conceded that capital controls can be useful in some situations.
