Jordan is considering the purchase of natural gas from a number of suppliers because of the repeated interruption in the supply of Egyptian natural gas caused by the bombing of the gas pipeline that carries natural gas to Jordan and Israel. Iran is among a number of countries who offered to supply natural gas to Jordan through a pipeline that currently carries gas to Iraq and Turkey. Russia and Qatar are other potential suppliers.
In recent years, the Egyptian natural gas met 80% of Jordan's needs. However, the most recent interruption which lasted 82 days is impelling Jordan to avoid being heavily dependent on Egyptian supply in the future.
