Egyptian natural-gas supplies to Jordan reached 200 million cubic feet a day, Egypt’s state-run Middle East News Agency reported, citing Jordanian Energy Minister Khalid Touqan.

Egyptian gas flows to its eastern neighbor resumed on March 15 after an explosion in the pipeline on Feb. 5, the agency, also known as MENA, said.

Under the agreement between the two countries, Jordan imports 240 million cubic feet a day of natural gas from the North African country, which is used to generate 80 percent of its electricity needs, according to MENA.
