Amman will sign a deal with Beirut and Damascus next week to boost supply by 150 megawatts from midnight and 6 AM, and 250 megawatts during the rest of the day.
The US-supported plan also aims to pump gas supplies through an Arab pipeline established about 2 decades ago.
Lebanon has been mired in a financial crisis, caused by corrupt government rule and massive debt accrued during the 1975-1990 civil war. The country has been struggling to access sufficient foreign exchange to cover the cost of fuel and other basic imports.
Earlier this week, the US State Department Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs denied reports that Washington mediated a deal for Israel to indirectly supply natural gas to Lebanon.
