Russia’s Gazprom may consider a number of export-oriented projects in Iran.
Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev (pictured) told RIA Novosti:
“With regard to Iran’s export opportunities, they, of course, exist both in pipeline gas and liquefied natural gas. However, what the purpose of this gas will be, it is still an open question.
“In addition, we do not exclude our participation in a number of projects in Iran, with export orientation.”
Gazprom and the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) held talks in December on expanding Iran’s underground gas storage and its gas transport network, as well as equipment deliveries from Russia.
