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.
