The companies developing the Leviathan gas field offshore Israel have entered negotiations to change the route of a pipeline to Egypt so that it passes through Jordan, according to Bloomberg.

Delek Group and Noble Energy are discussing sending around 3 billion cubic metres of gas a year to Egypt. They hope the new route will help them circumvent issues arising from a gas price dispute between Egypt and Israel.

The Leviathan partners signed a gas supply deal with Jordan in September.
