Kuwait: Iran gas supply of strategic importance

Nader al-Sultan, MD of the Kuwaiti Oil Co (KOC), has stressed on the importance of a gas pipeline project, which will facilitate the transporting of Iranian gas to the region.

According to Nader, “The establishment of a common gas network by all the Persian Gulf littoral states in partnership with Iran would help balance the supply and guarantee stability on regional gas market.”

“[It is] for the same reason [Kuwait] intends to meet a part of its gas needs from Iraq and Qatar and putting gas purchase from Iran on [our] agenda,” added Nader who confirmed officials of his company are in constant talks with their counterparts in the three countries on the matter.
