Three attacks on Egypt gas pipeline impacting Jordan's economy
The suspension of 300 million cubic feet of Egyptian
gas per day
stemmed from three attacks on the pipeline in the Sinai Peninsula since
"We have been forced to rely on diesel and heavy fuel," Touqan said.
Egyptian gas was said to have supplied 80 percent of the fuel for
Jordanian power stations. Israel has relied on Egypt for up to 45 percent of
gas supplies required by the Jewish state.
