“Iraqi city of Basra has expressed readiness to import natural gas from Iran in two months … Shalamcheh border in the southwestern province of Khuzestan has been chosen as the gateway for gas export to Basra," Hamidreza Araqi said, source reported.


According to the contract agreement, Iran will initially export 7 million cubic meters of gas to neighboring Iraq and will reach 35 MMcm/d gradually.


Iran started gas flow to Baghdad in June but no gas has yet reached Basra.
