Iran meets 30% of Turkey gas demands

The Islamic Republic of Iran supplies 10 billion cubic meters of gas to Turkey annually accounting for nearly 30 percent of the country's gas demands.

Iran can export 40 mcm/d of gas to neighboring Turkey and has recently launched projects which ensure stability in supply, said head of Bazargan Export Station, Shana reported.

Sadeq Akbarpour said Iran injects gas to Turkey via a 1,800-km pipeline which is supported by 17 pressure boosting stations.

He said the price of the gas is not stable and depends on numerous factors including the price of oil.

He further said Iran cannot provide an excess of 30 mcm/d of gas to Turkey under its current gas deals. Any boost in the gas supply needs another deal between the countries based on new terms.

Iran has recently launched phase 2 of Tabriz pressure boosting facilities to ensure stability in gas exports to neighboring Turkey.
