The additional exports are expected to generate an extra 100 million shekels in revenue annually.
Israel’s Ministry of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources said it would begin exporting natural gas to Egypt via Jordan.
According to a report in Globes on Wednesday, the fuel would first travel through a pipeline to Jordan, passing near Beit She’an, and then on to Aqaba and Egypt.
Currently, Israel exports 3 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually to Jordan and separately 5 billion to Egypt through a pipeline from Ashkelon to Sinai.
Israeli gas should start flowing through the new route to Jordan and then on to Egypt later this month, according to the report.
Globes added that the additional exports are expected to generate an extra 100 million shekels ($31 million) in revenue annually.
