In July, Ouji
stated that the project demands for the the construction of a 56-inch (142 centimetre) pipeline with a capacity of 110 million cubic metres a day, linking southern Iranian port of Assalouyeh to Iraq and then to Syria, with the possibility of extending to Lebanon and Europe.
Soon the feasibility studies will be given to an international consultant," Ouji
said without detailing any timetable.
The construction of pipelines stretching for several thousand kilometers "should take three to five years once funding is secured," according to an estimate by Ouji
said on Sunday that Iraq should initially receive about 20 million cubic metres a day for its power plants, and Syria between 20 and 25 million cubic metres a day.
pointed out that the gas export contract will finally be signed by the two sides by the end of this year or at most at the being of next year.
With the construction of the new pipeline, our country will be able to export 50 to 60 million cubic metres of gas a day to this country (Turkey) and Europe in three years it quoted Ouji

did not say if Iran planned to expand the area served by Turkmen gas, but it seemed unlikely that the huge increase could solely reflect growth in local demand.
Chief Executive of the National Iranian Gas Company Javad Ouji
said that the volume of gas exported by Turkmenistan to Iran will increase up to 40 million cubic meters per day by the beginning of winter (January 2011).
This is a happy day," Iran's deputy oil minister Javad Ouji
told reporters at the contract-signing ceremony.
The landmark agreement was signed in Tehran by Iran's deputy oil minister Javad Ouji
and a Pakistani delegation that included Kamran Lashari, secretary for the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources, and Naeem Sharafat, managing director of the Inter-State Gas Company.
