European Commission to develop plans for importing Iranian gas

Following the publication of an interview conducted by ENERGLOBE with Iran’s deputy oil minister for international relations, Ali Majedi, in which he discussed Iran’s desire – conditional on the lifting of economic sanctions – to revive and expand economic relations with Europe, including transporting natural gas through Turkey and along the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) to European consumers, this topic has garnered increasing attention in the press. A few days ago, Reuters reported on an internal paper drafted by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for foreign policy in which Iran is classified as an important future alternative to Russian gas imports, again, conditional on the lifting of sanctions and the construction of the necessary transport infrastructure. 

 

TAP, responding to an inquiry by ENERGLOBE, explained that "TAP’s shareholders have stated that TAP will not transport any Iranian gas under the current political circumstances. Any unsanctioned gas can be transported given that participants in the booking phase have submitted a valid booking request.”
