Iran has eight options to pipe gas to Europe

Iran is able to pump natural gas to Europe via eight routes, director for international affairs of the National Iranian Gas Company, Azizollah Ramezani said.

“The Europeans are seeking to diversify sources of energy supply in the Green Continent and after developing new phases of South Pars gas field Iran will have good potential for enhanced gas exports and it could be connected to the European gas network via eight routes,” Ramezani said i a statement.

He added that gas exports to Europe cannot be limited to a single route or a specific pipeline and said that NIGC will examine all existing options.

“There are seven to eight different routes for Iran to deliver its gas to Europe. One of them is Iran-Iraq-Syria route,” he added.

Ramezani said Armenia-Georgia-Black Sea and trans-Turkey pipeline are other options adding that Iran can supply 25 bcm to 30 bcm of gas to Europe every year.
