Over the past years, the circumstances in Iran under sanctions were such that international oil and gas companies have been banned from making any investments in Iran oil and gas industry; in addition, due to lack of financial resources and appropriate equipment, local companies have also been unable to implement major upstream and downstream oil and gas projects.

Upon lifting the sanctions, Iran gas industry is expected to witness significant growth and attract new investments in the short, medium to long term future. The report from IranOilGas Network proves a strong guide for strategy formulation of all the players interested in Iran gas industry.

There are numerous investment opportunities in the upstream sector of Iran gas industry and discovery of new gas reserves in different parts of Iran including northwest of Iran- in Zagros region, and in the Caspian Sea as well as in the Persian Gulf regions. Also, there are about 40 untapped or under-developing gas fields or gas layers- both onshore and offshore- which can be considered a great opportunity for investment of oil companies.

Having started to work as of August 2013, the new administration of the oil ministry of Iran is after applying various methods to attract local and foreign investors as well as major oil companies to get involved in Iran oil and gas projects.

Iran Gas Survey 2015, attempts to provide comprehensive information on current and historical developments in Iran gas reserves, its rich gas production, gas refineries and dehydration plants status, NGL and LNG plants, gas transfer pipelines, gas pressure booster stations, gas consumption and its breakdown as well as gas imports and exports.

In addition, it gives a clear picture on Iran gas industry outlook to 2025 in terms of rich gas production, gas refining and dehydration capacity, gas products and condensate production and the relevant consumptions as well as import and export.

The survey provides detailed information on current and historical gas and gas condensate upstream and downstream projects underway and the development /expansion plans Iran has on agenda for new investments. 

The survey identifies the investment opportunities in Iran gas industry upstream and downstream and denotes both its positive and negative aspects as well as the relevant existing challenges.

* Note: Throughout this survey, ‘last year’ means Iranian year started on 21st of March ‘14 and ended on 20th of March 2015.
