Gas exports to Iraq resumed

Gas exports to Iraq resumed

Export of gas to Iraq, which was suspended for some time because of damage to the sixth gas transmission line, was resumed following the restoration of the line.

Iran's gas exports to Iraq started again from Naftshahr to Baghdad, which had been suspended in the past few days due to damage to the sixth line, IRNA reported.

Gas transmission line was damaged on November 27 by landslides and floods in the Hosseinieh station of Andimeshk city, so gas exports to Baghdad were also suspended, but with the removal of the damaged line, gas exports to Baghdad was resumed and brought back to normal from December 5.

Gas exports to Iraq are now carried out on two routes from Naftshahr-Baghdad and Shalamcheh-Basra while gas exports to Iraq via Shalamcheh-Basra border are also continuing in the normal procedure.

Iran exports about 15 million cubic meters of gas to Iraq and this figure will increase exports to about 40 million cubic meters per day once all export plans become operational.
