Iran's Gas Export to Baghdad Will Reach 14 mcm/d Next Month

Iran is set to double natural gas exports to the Iraqi capital Baghdad in June, as part of a plan formulated between the two sides last year, a senior energy official said.
"As per the agreement, gas exports to the neighboring country's capital initially averaged 6 million cubic meters per day … The amount currently stands at 8.5-9 mcm/d and will reach 14 mcm/d next month," Behzad Babazadeh, the National Iranian Gas Company's director for international affairs, was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Saturday. 
"Gas exports to Baghdad are progressing well and expected to reach the final volume of 30-35 mcm/d," he added.
Baghdad started taking in Iranian gas on 21 June 2017under an agreement signed by the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity. The agreement was signed in 2013 and originally scheduled for a mid-2014 launch, but faced repeated delays over the volatile security situation in Iraq.
Iran-Iraq gas export contract is currently a six-year deal, but it can be extended.
