Iran suggested Russian gas supplies through Azerbaijan

Iran suggested Russia to carry out the swap gas supply through its territory. This was stated by the Minister of Oil of the Islamic Republic of Javad Ovji.

“during the current trip to Russia discussed the swap supplies of Russian gas through Iran,” said the head of the Iranian ministry.

Owli stressed that Iran over the past months began to carry out gas supplies from Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan through its territory.

“Similarly, we suggested a rope of Russian gas from Azerbaijan to the south of Iran for the purpose of its subsequent export,” the TASS quotes with reference to the Tasnim Minister’s Tasnim agency.

According to Ovzhi, “gas in liquefied form can be exported to any point of the country.”
