Egypt to export gas to Lebanon via Jordan


CAIRO: Egypt’s Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla said he expects the supply of Egyptian gas to Lebanon to begin within weeks.

In televised statements on Sunday, the minister said Egypt has a surplus of natural gas.

He said a meeting was held between the Arab Gas Pipeline countries (Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon) to arrange the logistics of pumping gas back to Lebanon via lines in Jordan.

He said tests will be conducted in the coming weeks for the gas pipeline to Jordan to assess its suitability. Each country will bear the maintenance costs of the lines in its respective territory.

He said Lebanon was facing energy crisis and Egypt wanted to help the country counter the issue.
