Jordan selected Royal Dutch Shell Plc to supply liquefied natural gas for the next two years after a tender. 

Shell will send 18-20 shipments a year, covering 40 percent of Jordan’s needs for power, in 2016 and 2017, Abde Al-Fattah Al-Daradkeh, director general of National Electric Power Co. of Jordan, said Wednesday by phone. The Amman-based company initially sought LNG supplies for the four years from January 1, according to tender documents issued in July.
