Nowadays, Lebanon´s state-owned electricity company (Electricite de Liban) only covers two hours of service per day.

The agreement will provide two additional hours, the Lebanese Energy Minister Walid Fayyad, said.

It will also allow Lebanon te receive 250 megawatts, which represents two more hours of electricity, he stressed.

One is the obstacles stems from the U.S Caesar Act that prohibits any commercial trade with Syria and the project envisages the energy from Jordan, passing through Syrian territory and getting to Lebanon.

Another plan of Beirut consists on importing gas from Egypt that would flow through the so-called Arab Gas Pipeline connecting Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.
