The Birth of a Company

MIDTAP has been established since 1997 by the great efforts of his Excellency Eng. Sameh Fahmy, the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Wealth, who was the Chairman and C.E.O. of the company at that time. MIDTAP is considered the first
investment company in Egypt to carry out infrastructure projects and the construction of storage tanks, crude pipelines, petroleum products and coke loading facilities using Build, Lease and Transfer (BLT) system. This system gives the government the ability to construct great projects without burdening itself with investment liabilities and pushes the development wheel to its utmost. This is one of the policies, which were adapted by his Excellency Eng. Sameh Fahmy, the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Wealth. One of MIDTAP’s facilities is the jetty at the Dekheela Port in Alexandria, which is used to export high quality petroleum products and coke, thus saving the government from investment liabilities. MIDTAP is an Egyptian shareholding company established under the investment law (8 / 1997) for free zone in Alexandria.
