Jordan plans to offer a tender to build an offshore liquefied natural gas terminal in the Red Sea port of Aqaba by June, according to Al Arab Al Yawm.

The chilled gas will be initially supplied to local power generation plants, and at a later stage to the industrial sector and consumers, the newspaper reported, citing Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Qutaiba Abu Qura.

Tractebel Engineering SA, Navigant Consulting Inc. (NCI), Trowlers & Hamlins LLP and Mapstone are due to complete a feasibility study for the construction of the LNG terminal within two months, it said.
