Sameh Fahmi, the Egyptian Minister of Petroleum, is planning to meet the energy ministers of Syria, Jordan and Lebanon in Cairo by the end of May to discuss the development of the Arab gas pipeline. The ministers will study the possibility of linking this line with the European natural gas network after the completion of the pipeline four stages. This pipeline will stretch from Egypt to Jordan and then to Syria and Lebanon.

Fahmi explained that his recent talks with the Lebanese Minister of energy and water led to a review of the project development stages for the Arab gas pipeline. Both parties need to activate the agreement between Egypt and Lebanon on the sale and purchase of gas. The agreement covers the quantities, points of gas delivery, and the delivery schedule in addition to various technical and economical subjects.

On the other hand, the Lebanese Minister emphasized that Lebanon looks forward to benefiting from the experience of the Egyptian petroleum companies in light of its successful partnership in many other countries. He explained that there are currently joint working groups of experts reviewing the contracts of the gas pipeline to Lebanon and its use to generate electricity. Egyptian companies can contribute in the maintenance of natural gas network in Lebanon and play an important role in training the Lebanese on the management and maintenance of the petroleum projects.
