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.
