Managing-Director of the National Iranian Gas Exports Company (NIGEC) Ali-Reza Kameli said Iran is in talks with different countries for selling more gas.
“Negotiations for Iran’s gas sale have never been halted and we are currently in talks with many countries,” he told Shana.
He said Iran is currently talking with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Oman and Iraq for gas exports, adding that talks have also been held with Indian officials.
Kameli said Iran will be producing gas more than its domestic needs once new phases of the giant South Pars gas field come on-stream in the coming years.
Iran sits atop the world’s largest gas reserves. Iran is currently producing more than 700 mcm/d of sour gas which is fed into petrochemical plants, power plants, domestic industries, oil wells and households. A portion of this production is exported.
New phases of South Pars will add 200 mcm/d of gas to the country’s output.
