Jordanian protesters marched in Amman this past Friday (Sept. 30), carrying banners and shouting slogans against the Jordanian government and Israel.
The demonstration was held to protest against the new Jordan-Israel gas deal in which the Leviathan natural gas consortium signed a $10 billion, 15-year gas deal with Amman.
A senior official at the Jordan National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) told the Jordan Times that the deal will save them $600 million annually.
The consortium, comprised of the Texas-based Noble Energy firm and Israel’s Delek group, signed the contract on September 26 to supply the Jordan Electric Power Company with approximately 45 billion cubic meterse of natural gas, beginning in 2019.
