Jordan's Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources said on Sunday that it has sent a letter to Iraq's Ministry of Oil demanding the extension of an oil supply deal, under which Jordan imports around 10,000 barrels of oil daily from Iraq, APA reports.

Iman Awad, director of Oil and Natural Gas at Jordan's ministry, said Jordan requested the extension of a memorandum of understanding, which ended on May 4, for three additional months, according to a statement by the ministry.

Awad added that the ministry is closely following up with the Iraqi side and the Jordanian embassy in Baghdad to obtain the necessary approvals for the extension.

She noted that oil imports from Iraq under the deal constitute about 7 percent of the kingdom's crude oil needs.
