Egyptian natural gas will be re-pumped again to Jordan after it was halted for six days, delivering the same quantities that were previously agreed upon, according to Al Ahram Online.
The Egyptian-Jordanian Fajr for Natural Gas Transport and Supply Company told the Jordanian state-funded Al-Mamlaka (The Kingdom) TV channel that the gas will be bumped within 48 hours.
According to Al Ahram, Jamal Qmoh, Rapporteur of the Energy Parliamentary Committee in Jordan, said: “Egypt provides Jordan with daily quantities ranging from 35 to 70 million cubic feet of natural gas.”
The flow of Egyptian natural gas to Jordan was returned in trial quantities in September 2018 after repeated stoppages since 2011 due to attacks on the pipeline that linked the two countries.
In April 2019, after the nine-year halt, the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) according to which Jordan resumed purchasing and selling natural gas with Egypt, Al Ahram reported.
Under the signed agreement, Egyptian gas supplies were planned to be increased to cover 50% of Jordan’s natural gas needs instead of only 10 % in 2018.
