Egypt on Thursday resumed natural gas supply to Jordan by 250 million cubic feet per day after repeated cuts in supply expected to cost the country four billion U.S. dollars by the end of this year.
Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour said at a press conference that Jordan has pledged to do all possible to commit to the agreement.
Jordan, which imports more than 96 percent of its energy needs annually, warned recently that its losses will reach about four billion dollars by the end of 2012, as the supply from Egypt witnessed several disruptions since early 2011 to date because Egypt's gas pipelines were repeatedly bombed by saboteurs.
After the repeated cuts, Jordan's power stations were forced to use more expensive heavy fuel for power generation.
The Jordanian prime minister expressed hope that no more disruptions will be witnessed in the supply from Egypt.
