Officials said Iran has relayed an offer to supply gas to the Hashemite
kingdom. They said Teheran submitted the offer in early June and was waiting
for a response from the government in Amman.
"The Iranian gas can be exported to Jordan through the pipelines that
supply Iraq and Turkey with Iranian gas," Jordanian Energy Minister Khalid
Touqan said on July 11.

In an interview with Jordan's Al Ghad daily, Touqan also reported gas
offers from Qatar and Russia.
Egypt has sought to increase the price of its
gas by at least 40 percent amid five attacks on the Arab Gas Pipeline in the
Sinai Peninsula in 2011. Officials said the attacks halted the gas flow for at
least 82 days over the last six months.
