Egypt Resumes Natural Gas Exports to Jordan, Petra Says

Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt resumed pumping natural gas to Jordan at 250 million cubic feet a day as stipulated under an agreement between the countries, the state-run Petra news agency cited Jordan’s Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour as saying.

Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil, who is visiting Amman, said after meeting Ensour that the natural gas agreement with Jordan is already working, adding that the energy industry in Egypt faces challenges that place pressure on Egypt’s ability to meets its needs.

Jordan, one of the region’s smallest economies, imports 95 percent of its energy.
