Islamic Republic of Iran and Oman signed a memorandum of understanding on gas export to the neighboring country.
The MoU was signed by Iranian minister of petroleum Bijan Namdar Zanganeh and his omani counterpert Mohammed bin Hamad Al Rumhy here yesterday in which the two sides agreed to start construction of a gas pipeline in near future.
Signing the deal is considered as one of the most important achievements of a three day Omani high ranking delegation visit to Iran headed by Oman ruler Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said that ended on Monday.
Following an earlier meeting with Omani Minister of Oil and Gas on Sunday, Zanganeh had told IRNA that the two sides reached good understandings on gas export to Oman and will pursue the next steps in the future.
Iran and Oman have great potentials for boosting cooperation in oil industry including supplying gas to Oman's LNG units which could be met mainly through sweet gas reserves of Kish gas field in the Persian Gulf.
Iran sits atop the second largest gas reserves in the world and short distance between the two countries through Persian Gulf waters turns Iran into one of the best options for meeting the neighboring country's gas needs.
In 2007, Oman demanded to import two billion cubic feet of natural gas from Iran. At that time, National Iranian Gas Exports Company (NIGEC), now defunct, held fruitful talks with Oman.
