Gazprom CEO discusses energy cooperation during visit to Iran

The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gazprom, Alexey Miller, led a delegation to Iran to discuss energy cooperation and a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Iranian National Oil Company (NIOC), according to a Gazprom press release.
The delegation held meetings with high-ranking Iranian officials to discuss cooperation in the energy sector, including the implementation of the memorandum of understanding signed by Gazprom and NIOC in 2022, reported Tasnim News Agency.
The memorandum aims to evaluate cooperation prospects in developing Iranian gas and oil fields, performing swap transactions with natural gas and petroleum products, implementing large-scale and small-scale LNG projects, constructing gas trunk lines, and cooperation in science and technology fields.
During his visit, Miller met with Mohammad Mokhber, first vice president of Iran, Oil Minister Javad Owji, and NIOC officials.
Miller and his delegation compiled a roadmap for cooperation on projects in the Iranian oil and gas sector.
Miller and Gazprom executives had previously met with Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Kazem Jalali, on Monday before departing for Iran.
Last year, Gazprom and NIOC signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on over $40 billion worth of oil and gas projects in Iran.
Gazprom will contribute to Iran’s plans to develop six oil fields and two gas fields under the MoU, while Iran will enable the Russian company to export its gas through Iranian territory under a swap arrangement, according to Iranian Oil Ministry officials.
