Iran will begin to export natural gas to Turkey

Jul 30, 2001 02:00 AM

Iran will begin to export natural gas to Turkey. The Oil Ministry said that in the first year Iran would export 3 bn cm (105 bn cf) to its north-western neighbour.
In 2007, the amount will increase to 10 bn cm (350 bn cf) a year, IRNA reported. "The export of Iranian natural gas to Turkey is the biggest and most important contract between Iran and Turkey," the ministry said.

Turkey's state-run pipeline company, BOTAS, said it had completed the construction of a pipeline designed to import $ 20 bn worth of natural gas from Iran over 25 years. Turkey's close ally, the United States, has strongly opposed the gas deal with Iran. But Turkey needs natural gas and sees Iran as a reliable source. Major Turkish cities such as Ankara sometimes suffer from severe shortages of gas during winter.
