Iran begins exporting natural gas to Iraq

Iran began exporting its natural gas to the neighboring Iraq on Wednesday evening, Deputy Petroleum Minister for International Affairs Amir Hossein Zamaninia says.

According to Zamaninia, at the preliminary stage, volume of the natural gas exported to Iraq, stands at approximately seven million cubic meters per day, he said, IRNA reported.

This is expected to ultimately increase to 35 million cubic meters per day, he added. 

Iran has already inked two contracts to send its natural gas to the Iraqi capital Baghdad as well as Basra, south of the country.

Due to security problems in Iraq, natural gas exports from Iran to the war-torn country have been postponed several times.
