Jordan exported nearly 560,000 cubic feet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Egypt four months ago, through a floating gas ship that docked off the shores of Aqaba.
"This comes as part of an agreement with Egypt to supply 140,000 cubic feet of electricity for 10 months, starting from March until the end of December," Al-Ghad newspaper quoted the assistant director-general of the National Electricity Company for Planning and Production Amin Al-Zaghl as saying.
"The export of liquefied natural gas to Egypt falls under the protocol signed previously with Cairo, which provides for the mutual benefit of gas between the two countries."
Jordan has exported to Egypt nearly 670 million cubic meters of LNG during the past year, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources said earlier, noting that the port of Sheikh Sabah Liquefied Natural Gas in the city of Aqaba received 48 liquefied natural gas shipments during the year 2016.
