Ex­port of Nat­u­ral Gas to Guar­an­tee Iran Se­cu­rity

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN (IRNA) - Sign­ing of nat­u­ral gas ex­port agree­ments be­tween Iran and its neigh­bors will in­ter­twine se­cu­rity of the re­gional coun­tries to­gether and this is sig­nif­i­cant in pre­serv­ing Iran’s se­cu­rity, the man­ag­ing director of the Na­tional Ira­nian Gas Com­pany said.

‘Nat­u­ral gas ex­port is go­ing to ben­e­fit both the re­cip­i­ent coun­tries and Iran,’ Hamid Reza Araqi said on Tues­day.

‘Re­cip­i­ents of the Ira­nian nat­u­ral gas can turn the wheels of their economies, while Iran can foster its de­vel­op­ment through sell­ing the com­mod­ity,’ Araqi added.

Elab­o­rat­ing on the con­struc­tion of the Sixth Iran Gas Trun­k­line, an im­por­tant stretch of the na­tional gas grid, he said that the gas pipe­line had to pass through the Karoun River.

‘In or­der to pre­serve the en­vi­ron­ment we used a mod­ern tech­nol­ogy and the pipe­line, though pass­ing through the Karoun River, causes no en­vi­ron­men­tal haz­ards to the wa­ter body,’ he stressed.

Ex­port­ing nat­u­ral gas to the neigh­bor­ing Iraq, us­ing the Sixth Gas Trun­k­line, con­sti­tutes one of Iran’s pri­or­ity projects. A pipe­line, 48 inches in di­am­e­ter, will take Ira­nian nat­u­ral gas from Asaluyeh in south­ern Iran along a

140 Kms path to Ah­vaz and then to Iraq.
