Most of the infrastructure is in place to export natural gas from western Kurdestan Province to Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, provincial head of the National Iranian Gas Company said.
"NIGC is ready to export 8 million cubic meters of gas per day to Iraqi Kurdistan in the north," Ahmad Felegari was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Felegari said talks are underway with Iraqi officials to complete technical and financial details.
"As soon as negotiations produce results, NIGC will start gas exports to the region through a diversion of the Marivan-Saqqez pipeline," he said.
