Iraq Could Overtake Turkey by Importing More Iranian Gas

The state-run National Iranian Gas Company is determined to expand its presence in the world market and advance Iran's gas exports, the managing director of NIGC said on Tuesday.
Outlining his company's plans for the current fiscal that started on March 21, Hamidreza Araqi added that "meeting [domestic] gas demand and revising the current structures are also high on NIGC's agenda", Shana reported.
The official said gas export to the Iraqi city of Basra is set to commence soon.
According to Araqi, Iran's gas export to Iraq is set to reach 50 mcm/d this year, 25 mcm/d to each of the two cities.
"If the goal is achieved, Iraq will become the biggest importer of Iranian gas by overtaking Turkey," he said.
Iran is currently exporting gas to Baghdad from Naftshahr in Kermanshah Province through a pipeline diverging from the Sixth Iran Gas Trunkline (IGAT-6).
