TEHRAN, Iran – National Iranian Gas Co. (NIGC) expects a feasibility study on construction of the Iran-Oman gas pipeline to be completed by mid-August.

Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Co. is working on the offshore section across the Persian Gulf.

NIGC managing director Alireza Kameli told news service Shana that following a recent meeting between Iran’s Petroleum Minister Bijan Zangeneh and Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawai, the two parties agreed to study and select the best and most economical route.

“Negotiations on the details of the project will start as soon as the study is carried out,” he added.

Iran has offered to export 28 MMcm/d (1 bcf/d) of gas through the pipeline.
