    Amman, Jan. 19 (Petra)- Jordan, Lebanon and Syria are scheduled next Wednesday to sign a transit agreement and a contract to supply Lebanon with part of its electrical energy needs from Jordan through the Syrian grid, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Dr. Saleh Kharabsheh, announced.

    In a press statement on Wednesday, Kharabsheh stressed the importance of the agreement in helping Lebanon to meet part of its electrical energy needs, in implementation of His Majesty King Abdullah II's directives to support the Lebanese people in overcoming obstacles in the energy sector.

    Under the agreement, Lebanon will be provided with about 150 megawatts of electricity from midnight to 6 a.m., and 250 megawatts during the remaining hours, Kharabsheh pointed out.

    The project, he said, will benefit the Jordanian electrical system, as Lebanon will be supplied directly from the Kingdom's power transmission networks.

    The minister added: 'The selling price of electricity to Lebanon will not cause any losses to the Jordanian electrical grid, as the distribution cost will not be included in the selling price offer.'
