Iraq and Jordan Consider Gas Pipeline
|June 17, 2012||Filled under Iraq Daily News|
UPI reports that the Iraqi and Jordanian governments plan to meet in July to discuss the building of a natural gas pipeline between the countries.
As its current supplies of natural gas from Egypt are unreliable, the Jordanian government has been considering securing natural gas supplies from other neighbouring countries.
Last week, Iraq approved a memorandum of understanding (MoU) specifying the terms for a natural gas pipeline to the Jordanian port of Aqaba.
The Jordanian Energy Ministry said officials are expected to have meetings in July geared toward technical reviews of the project, The Jordan Times reports, but it adds that the project won’t solve Jordan’s immediate energy concerns. The pipeline from Iraq could take five years to build.
Utility companies in Jordan warned that power cuts may be expected during the summer months, partly because of problems with gas supplies.
