The companies operating the two fields - Delek Drilling and Noble Energy - reached a deal in 2018 with Egypt's Dolphinus Holdings to start exporting gas through its well-developed LNG plants.
"The North African country is now exporting one billion cubic feet of gas to Europe every month via 10 shipments", Egypt's petroleum minister said in remarks published on Wednesday, and cited by Reuters.
Earlier this month, it was announced that representatives from Israel, Cyprus and Greece signed an agreement to establish the East-Med gas pipeline, to export natural gas from the offshore gas reservoirs of Israel and Cyprus to European countries.
Egypt is also set to allow Israel to export some of its natural gas to Europe through Egypt's liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities. In October, they agreed to increase gas flows by nearly 35% more than the figure set in 2018, when they inked a 10-year deal valued at $15 billion.

Israel has pegged the Leviathan gas field, which is about 130 kilometers (81 miles) west of the Israeli port city of Haifa, as its main source of the product, with an estimated 605 billion cubic meters in reserves.
Israel's eastern neighbour Jordan - the only other Arab country with which it has signed a peace treaty - has been purchasing gas from the Tamar field on a small scale for some three years.
Initially built to export Egyptian gas to Israel, the pipeline sat largely idle for six years due to domestic gas shortages in Egypt and repeated attacks by armed fighters in the Sinai. The Tamar supply will start in June 2020.
The start of Leviathan production was making Israel a regional player in the energy industry, said Yael Ravia-Zadok, head of the Foreign Ministry's Economic Diplomacy Division, speaking at the energy conference last month. This "energy diplomacy" means discourse about natural gas has become an integral part of the regional agenda, she said.
