The Parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee determined, on Wednesday, the volume of electrical energy generated by the Gulf and Jordanian connections, while noting that the two connections are not the adequate solution to the electricity problem.
Committee member Sadiq Al-Sulaiti said, according to the official agency, that "the steps to link the electric power system with neighboring countries are positive," noting that "there are technical positives in the connection, describing Iraq as having a shortage and fluctuation in electrical energy."
He added, "The connection with the Gulf or with Jordan is not the adequate solution, despite our need, but the connection numbers are shy," explaining, that "the connection with the Gulf will be in the first phase only 500 megawatts, and this is not enough to operate one governorate, and we hoped that it would be The connection with the Gulf is from 3000 to 4000 megawatts, but we do not believe that this will happen in the near future.”
He continued, "The connection with Jordan, we do not believe that it will exceed 200 megawatts, and these numbers are few," noting that "the committee encourages the Gulf connection, despite its scarcity, to ensure technical stability and fill the shortage."
Al-Sulaiti stated, "The issue of the interconnection is commercial, as the Gulf Interconnection Authority is an independent authority and is not affiliated with any Gulf country," pointing out that "the authority was established through the Gulf Cooperation Council and has a link with all Gulf countries, and there is surplus capacity in some Gulf countries that can be sold. To other countries that suffer from a lack of energy.” Ended 29/A 43
