Iranian bid to take equal share with Qatar from joint gas field

TEHRAN, June 8 (KUNA) — Managing Director of Pars Oil and Gas Company Ali-Akbar Shabanpour said on Wednesday that Iranian bid to take equal share with Qatar from joint South Pars fields will be materialized by March 20, 2017, marking end of the current Iranian year of 1395.
Shabanpour said that by the date phases 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 of South Pars gas field will be operational. So far Iran failed to take its equal shares from the joint fields in the Gulf due to technical shortfalls.
He said operation of five standard phases in a year is something unprecedented and it is the advantage of the policies of the Ministry of Petroleum for speedy development of the joint fields with neighboring states.(end).
