Egypt, Lebanon and Syria, on June 21, signed an agreement to transport 650 million cubic meters of gas annually from Egypt to Lebanon via Syria, in a ceremony held at the Lebanese Ministry of Energy in Beirut.
Under the agreement, the gas will be pumped through a pipeline to the Deir Ammar power station in northern Lebanon, where it can add about 450 megawatts to the grid, equivalent to about four additional hours of electricity per day.
The deal would ease the electricity crisis that the Lebanese people are suffering from.
The meeting also tackled the Turkish measures regarding the construction of dams on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which caused water stress in the downstream countries of Iraq and Syria.
