EGA is the third-largest electricity generator in the UAE after the Dubai and Abu Dhabi utilities – its power plant in Jebel Ali has a capacity of 2,350MW.

State-held news agency Wam reports that the agreement is the first one wherein EGA will supply another company with all its power requirements.

Abdulla Kalban, EGA managing director and CEO said, “EGA and the DUGAS operate two of the largest industrial facilities in Dubai and this agreement makes the combined use of natural gas for power generation more efficient.
