Texas energy firm worker killed in Egypt
Apache spokesman Bill Mintz said Sunday the attack occurred last week as the employee was driving in the desert.
Egyptian security officials said Sunday that investigations were ongoing to determine who was behind the death of the man. Mintz says Apache is cooperating in the probes.
The name of the victim has not been released. Officials at the Houston company are trying to notify the employee's relatives.
Mintz describes the employee slain Aug. 6 as a long-time employee who worked with production operations.
Apache has a large oil and gas operation in Egypt's western desert.
