E.O. 12958: DECL: 03/23/13
TAGS: PREL EPET EAID PGOV JO SA KU TC
SUBJECT: (S) JORDANIAN OIL NEEDS: UAE READY TO
TRANSFER FUNDS



1. (U) CLASSIFIED BY AMBASSADOR MARCELLE M. WAHBA
FOR REASONS 1.5 (B,D).



2. (S) IN THE COURSE OF A MEETING ON THE
AFTERNOON OF 3/23, MFA MINSTATE SHAYKH HAMDAN BIN
ZAYID STATED THAT HE HAD BEEN CALLED BY JORDANIAN
FM MUASHER THE PREVIOUS EVENING, WHO HAD TOLD HIM
THAT IRAQ HAD CUT ITS OIL PIPELINE SUPPLY TO
JORDAN EARLIER THAT DAY. SHAYKH HAMDAN SAID SAUDI
ARABIA AND KUWAIT WILL SUPPLY JORDAN WITH 75
THOUSAND BARRELS PER DAY (KSA 50,000 AND KUWAIT
25,000). THE UAE IS PROVIDING JORDAN WITH AN
IMMEDIATE CASH INFUSION TO HELP DEFRAY THE COST OF
PURCHASING FUEL FROM OTHER SOURCES. THE MONEY IS
READY NOW AND WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE JORDANIAN
CENTRAL BANK AS SOON AS AMMAN PROVIDES THE
APPROPRIATE ACCOUNT NUMBER. THE AMBASSADOR ASKED
IF THE EMIRATI CONTRIBUTION WOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO
COVER WHAT WE UNDERSTOOD HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY
AGREED -- 25,000 BARRELS PER DAY (BPD). SHAYKH
HAMDAN STATED THE UAE WOULD DO ITS BEST TO PROVIDE
THE CASH EQUIVALENT OF 25 THOUSAND BPD.
