    Iran is planning to boost its natural gas output to 330 billion cubic meters a year by 2020. The country can reach the goal by launching new phases of giant South Pars gas field.
    According to the report of the Iran’s SHANA news agency, Turkey is currently receiving 30 million cubic meters (MMcm/d) of gas per day and is the only gas buyer of Iran. Under a 25-year deal signed in August 1996, Iran is committed to pumping 10 bcm a year of gas to this country.
    Meantime, due to the startup of new phases of the South Pars gas field, Iran is looking for new customers mainly from neighboring countries.
    Gas exports to Iraq are among other plans pursued by the Iranian Ministry of Petroleum for enhancing its share of global gas trade. This plan is set to start with the delivery of 5 MMcm/d of gas to Iraq before being increased gradually.
    Based on the agreement, Iran would export 25 million cubic meters (MMcm) per day to Iraq. The amount would increase to 35 MMcm/d during summer.
    According to this report gas exports to the Persian Gulf countries is Iran’s foremost priority due to the short distance involved.
    On the other hand gas export to European countries can also affect in enhancing Iran’s share in global gas trade.
    The EU supplies 22 to 23% of its energy needs by natural gas.
    The studies conducted by the European Parliament indicate that Iran has potential to export 25 to 30 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas per year to Europe via eight route.
