  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) coordinates the energy sector.

    EMRC, the Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission was created in 2014 by merging several regulatory bodies (Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Natural Resources Authority and Electricity Regulatory Commission).

  • Energy Supply


    Jordan is relatively poor in conventional energy resources (gas reserves estimated at 6 bcm and very low hydroelectric potential).

    It has the fifth largest oil shale resources, behind the USA, China, Russia, and Israel (100 mbl according to the WEC survey of energy resources), including 22 mbl of economically exploitable reserves in the Kérak and Lajjun regions.

  • Energy Prices


    With the rationalisation of consumption in mind, the prices of oil products have been raised in line with import and production costs. In 2012, Jordan lifted fuel subsidies, which implied a major rise in gasoline prices (+14% for lower grade gasoline, +33% for diesel (and kerosene) more than 50% for LPG).

  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita is 0.9 toe/cap, including 1 750 kWh of electricity (2018).

    The country's overall consumption (9 Mtoe in 2018) increased by 4%/year between 2000 and 2017 and decreased in 2018 (-4%).

    Oil is the country's main energy source, with 54% of total consumption, followed by natural gas with 38%.


  • Issues & Prospects

    In its 2007 Master Plan, MEMR overestimated the energy demand growth and the supply of alternative resources up to 2020 (total energy demand growth of 5.5%/year, 10% of renewables, 14% of oil shale and 6% of nuclear). It considered a stable share of gas (29% in 2020), which will increase due to additional availabilities.

Data (Excel Sheet)

The Jordan energy market data since 1990 and up to 2018 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Jordan country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Jordan Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Jordan energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).

The Jordan country report is complemented with a national power generation dashboard (excel file) from our Power Plant Tracker Service.

Data included in the excelsheet:

  • New capacities: Current power mix, installed capacity at date, capacity under construction and under development.
  • Power Sector Performances: Historical data on installed capacity, power generation, thermal power plants inputs, average thermal power plant efficiency, CO2 emissions of the power sector, carbon factor of the power sector.
