Gaza is facing various humanitarian challenges, major amongst the challenges is a lack in sufficient energy supply and security. Gaza does not have its own power generating capacity except for the Gaza Power Plant (GPP) which is a temporary diesel fired power plant that was installed to assist with the energy shortage. Gaza is therefore heavily reliant on its neighbouring countries Israel and Egypt to obtain energy. This neighbouring supply is however not reliable and also not enough for the total energy requirement.
A lack of energy limits economic growth and has a detrimental impact on the quality of life of Gaza’s citizens. The shortage of energy is mainly attributed to a lack in infrastructure, limited cost recovery and a lack of unity in legal and regulatory framework.
EPCM is appointed as the engineering consultants to conduct the detailed engineering design of a gas pipeline from Israel to Gaza as part of the G4G project.
This project is spearheaded by a dedicated task force appointed by the Office of Quartet (OQ) in support of the Palestinian Authority (PA). The project is also supported financially by the Government of the Netherlands.
development timelines; and project implementation timelines to meet the desired state.

- Recommendation of the most suitable drilling technique for the pipeline at crossings
- Basic and detailed engineering of the pipeline (including ability to accommodate other connections in the future)
- Topographical and geotechnical surveys
- Land-owner negotiations
- Ad-hoc support throughout the construction of the project
