On Friday, November 16, 2018, the Royal Jordanian Court announced details of the talks between King Abdullah II and Iraqi President Barham Salih, while stressing the need to strengthen economic cooperation, especially the extension of an oil pipeline from the city of Basra to the Jordanian port of Aqaba on the Red Sea.
Iraq has signed an agreement in 2012 with Jordan, including the extension of an oil pipeline across the Gulf of Aqaba with a capacity of one million barrels per day along with the extension of a gas pipeline, and includes strengthening cooperation in the field of transport and work on rail links between the two countries.
Iraq, which has the world's third largest oil reserves, estimated at 143 billion barrels, after Saudi Arabia and Iran, hopes that building the pipeline will increase its oil exports and diversify its ports.
Jordan, which imports 98 percent of its energy needs, hopes the pipeline will meet its crude oil needs of around 150,000 bpd and get 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.
The two countries are linked to a previous agreement that would supply Jordan with about 30,000 barrels per day of Iraqi crude oil, in addition to 1,000 tons of heavy fuel, but the deal is stalled as a result of deteriorating security conditions in Iraq.
