AMMAN — The government is considering excluding diesel and gasoline produced by the Jordan Petroleum Refinery Company (JPRC) from Jordanian specifications, according to Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Hala Zawati.

Answering an inquiry from an MP during the Lower House oversight session, Zawati said that the company’s units are old and cannot meet the Jordanian specifications for diesel and gasoline before implementing its fourth expansion project.
