Iran to consider building oil pipeline from Kazakhstan

Oct 03, 2002 02:00 AM

Iran will give serious consideration to the possible construction of a Kazakh-Iranian pipeline.
"Iran may start considering the construction of a pipeline from Kazakhstan through Turkmenistan," the Iranian oil and gas ministry's director-general for the Caspian region said at the 10th international oil and gas conference in Almaty on 3 October. "As far as I understand, the Kazakh government is also in favour of this project," he said.

He said that nobody has any doubts that the Iranian oil route is the most economical and ecologically safe. Oil companies regard this route as the most viable, because it is geographically good for transit, it is inexpensive and it is relatively short. He does not deny other options for oil export.
"I am sure that the region will produce enough oil and gas to supply them by different routes," he said.

Companies prospecting oil and gas in the Caspian region can be sure that Iran will be cooperative and offer its territory for oil and gas transit to world markets.
