The Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Khaled Touqan announced that a delegation headed by the General Secretary of the Ministry Eng Farouk El Harary would visit Egypt next week to discuss the technical procedures related to resuming the supply of Egyptian gas to Jordan.

The Egyptian side notified jordan in a message yesterday that the technical glitches that affected the gas pipeline have been removed and pumping to the kingdom will start shortly to Petra as per Touqan confirmation. He stressed that the re-pumping of Egyptian natural gas is a strategic priority for Jordan. Over the past three years, Jordan depended on Egyptian gas to generate 80 percent of its electricity needs.

Commenting on Jordan’s nuclear energy programme, Touqan said that an operator and strategic partner will be likely named in the early summer for the atomic reactor which, according to plan, will be up and running by 2020.
