Lebanon to Start Receiving Gas From Egypt in August

Lebanon will become the first country to receive gas from the Arab Gas Pipeline when 30 million cubic feet a day of the fuel flow through it starting in August, Egyptian Oil Minister Sameh Fahmy said.

The pipeline, which originates in Egypt and runs to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, will reach Turkey by December 2010, Fahmy told reporters in Cairo today.

“Expanding the pipeline to go to Iraq from Syria is a possibility,” Fahmy said at a news conference with the energy ministers of Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.

Egypt, the second-largest gas producer in Africa, has reserves of 78.7 trillion cubic feet of the fuel.
