Mar 29, 2006 02:00 AM

Energy Ministers of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon and the Deputy Trade Minister of Romania have reached an agreement on extending the Arab gas pipeline to the border between Syria and Turkey.
From there, the pipeline will be linked up to the proposed Nabucco gasline for the delivery of Egyptian gas to Europe.

The Ministers agreed on the work plan for the extension of the Arab Gas Pipeline so that in two year's time it would reach the Turkish border. The Pipeline, now in its third phase, is scheduled to cover a length of 324 km from the Jordanian border to the Deir Ali power station in Syria.
From there it would extend to the town of Rayan and then would be routed to the Turkish border. There is also a strong probability that the Pipeline would also be extended from Syria to Lebanon.

Egyptian Oil Minister Sameh Fahmy revealed that his country and Jordan have agreed to set up Arab Gas, a joint Egyptian-Jordanian company, which would distribute gas from the Pipeline to households and power stations. He added that a similar company would be established between Egypt and Turkey with a view to market natural gas in Turkey and Europe.
Turkey expects to purchase between 2 and 4 bn cm of gas per year from the Arab Gas Pipeline.
