16:301399/4/15Iran Recommences Gas Exports to TurkeyTEHRAN (NIOC) – Mohammad Reza Joulaei, caretaker of the dispatching department of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) said Iran’s gas exports to Turkey had been resumed at 2:10 p.m., Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
Iran’s gas exports to Turkey will continue in accordance with an already effective agreement between the two neighbors.
Turkish gas imports from Iran were halted due to an explosion in a natural gas pipeline inside Turkey near Iran’s Bazargan border with Turkey in March.
The explosion occurred in part of the pipeline to Turkey on Turkish soil about 1.5 kilometers from the Bazargan border and resulted in a fire and a halt in gas exports.
The pipeline carries around 10 billion cubic meters of Iranian gas to Turkey annually.
