A first blast occurred around 1:00 a.m. Thursday (2300 GMT Wednesday) 40 kilometers west of the town of al-Arish in the north of the Sinai peninsula, AFP quoted an Egyptian security source as saying.
Witnesses said they had also seen armed men at the scene of explosion. A second explosion took place near a pumping station in the same sector, causing a blaze.
Previous attacks had interrupted gas supplies to both Israel and Jordan several times, but it was not immediately clear what impact the latest attack would have on the energy route.
