Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Mohammad Hamed said that Jordan will import about one-third of its needs of natural gas from Gaza Strips’ offshore gas fields at the end of 2017. In October, the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) will sign a letter of intent with British Gas Group, which has concession rights to explore for gas offshore Gaza Strip, to import natural gas, the minister told The Jordan Times in an interview. NEPCO will import 150-180 million cubic feet per day of natural gas from fields the company is developing offshore Gaza Strip, said the minister. “During the first quarter of 2015, NEPCO will sign the agreement to purchase gas from British Gas Group.” Natural gas will be supplied to Jordan through the Arab Gas Pipeline, which is a natural gas pipeline that stretches from Egypt into Jordan and other neighbouring countries, Hamed noted.
