An Egyptian court has suspended an earlier ruling halting a much criticized deal to export Egyptian natural gas to Israel. Opposition groups had sued to halt the 15-year fixed price deal between an Egyptian company and the state-run Israel Electric Corporation, arguing it lacked any mechanism for Cairo to adjust prices to reflect current market conditions. The private company party to the deal is partly owned by the Egyptian government. In November, a lower court had ruled that the exports should be halted.
