    Economy News-Follow-up
    A report by the Gulf Times news website discussed the near completion of the first phase of the project to connect the Iraqi electrical grid lines to the Gulf Cooperation Council electricity system, with an investment value of $228 million, indicating that this will provide an amount of approximately 500 megawatts per hour of electrical energy to areas in southern Iraq by End of 2024.
    The report indicated that the project to connect the electricity networks of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries to each other has witnessed rapid progress in recent years, and one of the most prominent features of this project is the progress made in the stages of linking Iraq’s investment electrical network to the network of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, indicating that the start of linking the electricity network of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries with Iraq Its beginnings began on June 8, but it represents a first step to linking the network to countries outside the Council, with an ambition to reach other countries and reach the European market.
    According to the International Energy Agency, the Gulf countries, in addition to Iraq, recorded an increase during the period between 2021 and 2022 with the highest rates of electrical energy consumption in the Middle East.
    The report states that networking between Iraq and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries is one of the solutions adopted by Baghdad to address the failures of supplying the electricity sector in Iraq. The repeated failures in preparing the stations and the country's exposure to decades-long wars and crises and many other reasons, including repeated interruptions in Iran's gas supplies to Iraq, which causes the power plants to stop working.
    On June 8, 2023, the project to connect the Iraqi national grid to the Gulf Cooperation Council electricity network was started, and this represented the first electrical connection with countries outside the scope of the Gulf Cooperation Council. The first phase includes constructing and extending lines from the Wafra station in Kuwait to the Al-Faw station in southern Iraq to transmit about 500 megawatts at an investment cost of $228 million. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
    The project to connect the Gulf Cooperation Council line network with Iraq is funded by the Qatar Fund for Development and the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, and it is hoped that it will be completed at the end of next year. This project is a unique initiative of its kind with the goal of equipping the governorates of southern Iraq with electrical energy with a capacity of 500 megawatts per hour and a step to move beyond the borders of the GCC countries.
    The report also states that the importance of the networking project lies in deepening cooperation and communication between the GCC countries and Iraq. This project also enhances the project to connect the Gulf countries’ electricity network to support development efforts in the region.
    The announcement of the implementation of the project came after an agreement signed in July 2022. Important progress was achieved by completing the phase of laying the FAO-1 and FAO-2 interconnection lines in southern Iraq. The second phase includes the establishment of interconnection lines with Kuwait. The project to connect Iraq to the Gulf Cooperation Council network also includes establishing the main linking station in the Wafra area, with double lines also to connect with Al-Fadhli station in Saudi Arabia. This includes establishing a link between the Kuwaiti network and the Iraqi network with a 400-volt line.
    The report indicates that the project to connect Iraq's electrical network with the Gulf Cooperation Council network represents one of the Gulf's steps towards reaching the European market and exporting electricity to it, and this includes an interconnection project with Turkey. In addition, there is an expectation of a network connection between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, following the signing of an executive memorandum of understanding in July 2022. It is noteworthy that technical studies are underway to determine the connection points and routes for extending electricity lines along with the economic and technical aspects of this project.
    The initial step of the interconnection process includes the establishment of an electrical interconnection line with a length of 435 km between the Arar point in Saudi Arabia and the Yusufiya station near Baghdad, with a supply capacity of 1,000 megawatts and a voltage of 400 kilovolts.
    Iraq is also currently working on a network connection project with Jordan as part of its plan to solve the electricity sector crisis. The first phase of the project includes extending a 330 km electrical connection line extending from the Risha power station in Jordan to the Al-Qaim region in northwestern Iraq. The second phase of the project is expected to provide 500 megawatts, while the third phase is expected to have a capacity of 900 megawatts. Iraq hopes that linking with the Jordanian network will solve the crisis of supplying electrical power to the western regions of the country that have suffered from a supply shortage since 2014, as well as supplying continuous electrical power to the phosphate factories in the Akashat area in Anbar Governorate, as well as supporting the industrial zone project between Iraq and Jordan.
