Israel Moves Toward Energy Exports With Jordan Gas-Supply Deal

Israel moved a step closer to becoming a major natural-gas exporter to the rest of the Middle East after signing a 15-year deal to sell fuel to Jordan.

Partners in Israel’s Leviathan gas discovery, including Houston-based Noble Energy Inc., announced a preliminary deal today to sell gas to Jordan’s National Electric Power Co. The agreement follows a similar pact to supply gas to Egypt.
