IRAN & IRAQ AGREEMENT
Tehran and Baghdad today signed an 6-year agreement on November 11, aimed at exporting 25 million cubic meters per day (mcm/d) of Iranian gas to Iraq's Basra.
During 6 years Iran will export 40 billion cubic meters of gas to Iraq. Then the sides can extend the deal.
It's expected Iranian gas delivery to Basra to start in 2017.
Iran and Iraq sign an agreement on delivering 25 mcm/d of Iranian gas to Iraq's capital, Baghdad.
Following the new agreement, Iraq will import 50 mcm/d of Iranian gas in total.
Iran Oil Ministry's information website Shana reported that the two sides are currently in negotiations to increase Iran's gas export volume to Baghdad by 10 mcm/d in future.
In September, Azizollah Ramezani, the director for international affairs department for the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), said that as per an annexation to the gas export deal, the volume of gas expected to be supplied to Baghdad City would increase to 35 mcm per day from 25 mcm.
The two sides have held talks about the Iranian side offering technical, financial, and executive training to Iraqi personnel.
In 2013, the two countries signed an agreement for the export of natural gas from Iran's South Pars gas field to Baghdad. The project has been long in the offing but had been delayed over security concerns in Iraq.
