JORDAN

CAPITAL: AMMAN

POPULATION: 6 mm

AREA (on): 92,300 km2

OIL PEAK: na

SUPPLY

Jordan had minor oil production beginning in the late 1980s and is currently producing very small amounts of oil from the Hamza field.

The country has produced some gas from the Risha field since 1989 and output is expected to increase slightly with more investment in the region after a drop off in 2007. A gas field was discovered close to the Iraqi border in 1999 but no big increases are forecast elsewhere.

Jordan has no offshore waters.

 

DEMAND

Consumption of oil, all of which is imported, has been increasing, as Jordan grows, influenced by economic and political events in Iraq, however the country will see declining consumption by 2016.

Gas consumption is also increasing very slowly with output growth. Imports piped from Egypt could begin around 2014.
