Oil Minister to discuss Oil Pipeline Project with Jordan

By John Lee.

Petra reports that the Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Ibrahim Saif, will meet his Egyptian and Iraqi counterparts in Cairo on Tuesday to discuss developments regarding the Basra-Aqaba pipeline project.

The project, agreed by the three countries in Amman in November 2015, will see oil and gas pipeline running from Iraq to the Red Sea port of Aqaba.

Jordan is to benefit from Iraqi crude oil and liquefied gas for electricity generation.
