Iran resumes gas exports to Turkey

The National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) announced Wednesday that Iran has resumed gas exports to Turkey, according to official IRNA news agency.

Spokesman for the NIGC Mohammad Asgari said that gas exports to Turkey was resumed after the completion of the repair work in the gas export pipeline.

Gas flow to Turkey is continuing as before, Asgari was quoted as saying by IRNA.

On March 31, Iran’s gas flow to Turkey was halted because of an explosion at the pipeline near the border inside Turkey.

The pipeline, which carries around 10 billion cubic meters of Iranian gas to Turkey annually, has frequently come under attack by outlawed Kurdish militants over the past years.
