Jordan to ramp up output at Risha gas field

Jordan’s state-owned National Petroleum Company (NPC) plans to ramp up output at Risha gas field to 200mn ft3/day through 2024 to 2030, Jordan News Agency reported on April 25. Output from the field was about 50mn ft3/day during the 2020-2023 period.

The Risha gas field, located in northeastern Jordan approximately 370 km from Amman, was discovered in 1985 and began production in 1989. The field is currently operated by NPC, which holds a concession agreement with the government.

Jordan’s ministry of energy and mineral resources and Amman-based Harmony Investment Company recently signed a memorandum of understanding to work on harnessing the Risha gas field's geothermal energy for power generation and use in other industrial applications.
