Trade, Industry and Investment Minister Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour imposed the energy use restrictions, as various Egyptian governments have failed to develop and enforce good energy policies.  It is predicted that Egypt’s natural gas production will stop as early as July 2014.  The electricity minister predicts power cuts are inevitable this summer.
