Iraq, Jordan Eye Oil and Gas Links
Western and Asian investors may take part in the construction of a dual oil and natural gas pipeline from Iraq to Jordan, a business leader said.
Iraqi Business Council President Majid Saadi was quoted by The Jordan Times as saying developers from the United States, Canada and China may take part in a March tender for “the largest economic event in the Arab world in 50 years.”
Both sides, he said, are planning to start work on a feasibility study for the 1,000-mile double pipeline to deliver oil and natural gas to Jordan. The pipeline would run from the southern Iraqi port city of Basra through Anbar province and south to the Jordanian port city of Aqaba.
