02 January, 13:12

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, JANUARY 2 - Jordan since Wednesday has been receiving natural gas from the Leviathan platform located in front of the Israeli coast, the National Jordanian electricity company NEPCO said in a statement quoted by local media. ''Experimental provisions will continue over the next three months based on technical and contractual agreements between the two sides'', added NEPCO, referring to an agreement with US company Noble energy, which manages Leviathan with an Israeli enterprise. The contract provides for provisions for the next 15 years. Part of the Jordanian public opinion, however, opposes the use of gas coming from Israel. ''This is a black day in the history of Jordan'', said the Islamic Action Front.

    For its part the Jordanian government has said it is an agreement reached by private companies.(ANSAmed).
