Iraq and Jordan sign a power agreement to supply Iraq with electricity

The governments of Iraq and Jordan have signed a power supply agreement in which Jordan will supply electricity to the region of Al-Rutba in Iraq. Under the deal, Jordan will provide Iraq with a capacity of 40 MW through the first phase of an interconnection project (132 kV), which was completed in October 2023. The agreement is part of a comprehensive plan to establish a common Arab energy market in the future.

Construction of the Iraq-Jordan interconnection project began in October 2022. With the completion of the second phase, consisting in raising the interconnection line capacity to 400 kV in the third quarter of 2024, Iraq will be supplied with a total capacity of 150 to 200 MW. Capacity is expected to reach 500 MW, then 900 MW, in subsequent phases of the project.
