The Ministry of Electricity confirmed, on Sunday, that the first phase of the Gulf interconnection needs 14 months.
Ministry spokesman Ahmed Al-Abadi said in a statement reported by the official news agency "INA" and reviewed by "Al-Iqtisad News" that "in the event that the Gulf side proceeds to implement the first stage of the Gulf interconnection, they need a time limit of about 14 months to complete this stage of 500 MW.
He added, "The obligations entrusted to the Gulf side have not started yet. They are still in the process of scanning the lines' paths, and determining the locations of the lines and towers."
Al-Abadi pointed out that "there are a number of obligations to achieve the Gulf connectivity, part of which relates to the Iraqi side, which is to complete the lines and stations, and the other part relates to the Gulf side."
He explained that "Iraq completed the Faw - Abu Flus line No. 1, and the Al Faw transfer station 400, while the Faw Aboflos line No. 2 remained, whose work completion rate reached 60%."
He emphasized, "The governor of Basra pledged to complete this line, and thus Iraq has completed 80% of the belongings."
He pointed out that "it was supposed to enter the first 500 megawatts in the tenth month during the current year 2020, but it did not enter, due to the repercussions of the economic situation, the drop in oil prices and the effects of the global pandemic Corona."
