Jordan in Secret Talks to Import Natural Gas from Israel's Tamar Field
The partners in Israel's Tamar natural gas field have been conducting secret talks in recent months to export gas to Jordan that would power a potash plant on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea, a report said. The gas would be delivered through the Israeli gas pipeline that serves Israel Chemicals' Dead Sea Works plant in Sodom. Extending the pipeline to reach Jordan would not require a large investment, Haaretz reported. The negotiations are a sign of how desperate the kingdom is; it is considering a move as politically sensitive as sourcing gas from Israel. An Israeli gas contract with Jordan would strengthen bilateral ties and help Jordan's beleaguered King Abdullah, who has seen his support fall amid rising energy prices and other woes.
