Iran to Export Gas to Iraq, Europe and Persian Gulf

Iran will have the chance to export gas to Europe, Persian Gulf states and Iraq following the completion of three gas trunk-lines, director for planning at the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) said.

Hassan Montazer Torbati said Iran Gas Trunkine (IGAT)-6, IGAT-7 and IGAT-9 will facilitate gas exports to Iraq, Europe and Persian Gulf.

Torbati said NIGC is expanding infrastructure while focusing on more active presence in world markets.

“To that effect, a pipeline defined for the future will supply domestic needs besides serving exports objectives,” he said, adding that new pipelines will boost Iran’s gas trade.

“IGAT-6 and IGAT-9 will supply gas to west of Iran and also facilitate exports to Iraq, Turkey and Europe,” he said.

“IGAT-7 will facilitate gas exports to Persian Gulf countries,” Torbati added.
