Syria and Lebanon finalise plans for pipeline to take Syrian gas to Lebanon

Oct 26, 1999 02:00 AM

Plans for a $ 175 mm pipeline to take Syrian gas to Lebanon are in their final stage, the weekly Al-Baath al-Iqtisadi said. Under an agreement reached in 1997, Syria undertook to supply Lebanon with 3 mm cmpd (105 mm cf) of gas "to provide a quarter of its gas needs in the next ten years," the weekly said.
The pipeline will consist of two sections. The first section, 105 km (75 miles) long, will link the central Syrian city of Homs with Deir Ammar in northern Lebanon, while the second section of 135 km (90 miles) will go on to the southern Lebanese town of Zahrani, Lebanese official Antoine Rabat told the magazine.

Syria currently produces about 12.5 mm cmpd (467 mm cfpd) of gas in its eastern Deir al-Zur field. Conoco and French Elf signed a $ 430 mm deal in November 1998 to develop and process gas at Deir al-Zur.
