Jordan, Egypt Signed Deal To Boost Gas Infrastructure Cooperation

AMMAN, Jun 11 (NNN-PETRA) – Jordan and Egypt, yesterday, inked an agreement, aimed at bolstering cooperation in the realm of gas infrastructure.

As per the deal, Egypt will utilise the floating storage vessel, located at Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Port in Aqaba, Jordan, for gas processing. In return, Jordan will receive liquefied natural gas from Egypt and will, when required, pump back a portion of the natural gas through existing pipelines between the two nations.

The signing ceremony was attended by Jordanian Energy Minister, Saleh Kharabsheh, and his counterpart, Tarek El-Molla.

Kharabsheh highlighted the agreement’s primary objective of maximising resource utilisation, while reducing costs for both countries.

Egypt will utilise the Aqaba floating vessel until the expiration of the ship’s lease contract, at the end of 2025, the Jordanian minister said.

For his part, El-Molla emphasised Egypt’s expertise in various domestic gas applications, and expressed a commitment to sharing its experience with Jordan, to maximise mutual benefits.

He stressed the importance of bilateral cooperation in various projects, particularly those centering on energy efficiency, carbon reduction and tackling global warming, where natural gas plays a pivotal role.– NNN-PETRA
