1.  (s)  DCM met Jordanian Energy Minister Mohammed Bataineh 
July 7 to deliver reftel demarche points.  Bataineh was 
clearly disappointed, but noted that the GOJ would look to 
other methods to solve their summer refining problems.  For 
the current year this would mean continuing to import 
gasoline for local consumption from Iraq under the 
long-standing oil and trade protocols.  For the future, 
Bataineh said the GOJ would look again at increasing storage 
capacity for fuel oil and gas oil, a project he estimated 
would take one year and $45-50 million to complete.
