MOSCOW (TASS) - Russia’s gas giant Gazprom is interested in developing four gas fields in Iran and is ready to come out with relevant offers by late March, Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zanganeh said.
“Iran has signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with Gazprom for carrying out studies on development projects of Farzad A, Farzad B, North Pars and Kish gas fields and the Russian company has signaled keenness to develop the fields,” Shana news agency quoted him as saying.
