Jordanian energy minister, Mohammad Hamed has said the natural gas supply from Egypt remains completely halted and that Egyptian authorities are working on fixing the pipeline, Jordan Times has reported. “We have no information on when the gas supply will be resumed,” Hamed told the daily. The minister said the gas cut costs Jordan about $3m per day, with the country resorting to more expensive heavy fuel and diesel. “We asked the Egyptian authorities to speed up repairs on the pipeline, as resuming gas supplies will significantly help reduce pressure on Jordan’s energy bill. We hope that will be done soon,” he said.
