Jordanian official: Cairo compensates Amman for natural gas outages

A Jordanian government source said on Wednesday that Egypt is currently
compensating Jordan for supplying lower than agreed upon amounts of natural
gas.

The source, who requested anonymity, said, “The recent agreement signed with
Egypt during Jordanian Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Alaa Batayneh’s
visit to Cairo requires that the average supply of gas for the current year
reaches 60 million cubic feet daily, with compensation for the quantities
that were not delivered during the breaks after each pipeline bombing.”

Egypt is now pumping about 100 million cubic feet per day to Jordan, the
Jordanian official said.

“These quantities include the agreed upon rate of 60 million cubic feet, and
the difference is the amount of compensation,” he explained.

According to Jordanian officials, Jordan received around 87 million cubic
feet of natural gas from Egypt last year, compared to 220 million cubic feet
in 2010 and 300 million cubic feet in 2009.

Iraqi Ambassador to Jordan Jawad Abbas said that his country would double
its supply of oil to Jordan at preferential prices for up to 35,000 barrels
per day instead of 10,000 barrels.
