The Suez Canal is an artificial sea-level waterway in Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea through the Isthmus of Suez and dividing Africa.
In 1962, Egypt made its final payments for the canal to the Suez Canal Company and took full control of the Suez Canal. Today the canal is owned and operated by the Suez Canal Authority.
The Suez Canal is a significant route for energy, commodities, consumer goods and componentry from Asia and the Middle East to Europe. The canal's location also makes it a key regional hub for shipping oil and other hydrocarbons. ... Approximately one million barrels of oil traverse the Suez daily.
In this documentary, we take a look at the extreme engineering specifications that made the Suez Canal.
Using unprecedented 3D images, we reveal how the canal will be widened. We also look back to the original construction, back in 1859, to show how it first came to be built.
