Israel said to be planning gas pipeline from the Dead Sea to Jordan

Israel is understood to be planning the building of a gas pipeline to convey natural gas that would connect it to Jordan through the Dead Sea.

 

Work on the 15 km (9 mile) pipeline is expected to start in 2015 and will be completed in 2016. Israel plans to export gas produced from the offshore Leviathan field to Jordan. Jordan has been suffering from gas shortages since the deposition of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, when Egypt was plunged into severe chaos.

 

Unidentified militias have exploited the situation several times and attacked the pipeline which had been used to transfer Egyptian gas to Israel and Jordan.

 

The news confirms Israel's policy to start by exporting its natural gas to immediate neighbors' before considering reaching further markets such as Europe and East-Asia. The decision to sell natural gas to regional customers is motivated by the fact that such energy deals require simpler and lower cost infrastructure.

 

Pipelines that would connect Israel to its immediate neighbors would be relatively cheap to construct and Israel could also make use of existing infrastructures.
