Abbas told ” The Syria Report” that gas import volumes would rise to 6 million cmd by 2012.

Ali Abbas said that the Syrian Gas Company supplied the domestic market with about 12 million cmd of clean gas, but actual demand was estimated at 25 million cmd and for this reason it needed natural gas imports. He estimated that the country’s current production of raw gas stood at 22 million cmd.

The Director General of SGC added that Syria expected to have additional supplies of about 30 million cmd by 2012 from projects under construction, such as South Middle Area Gas Project, the North Middle Area Gas Project and PetroCanada/ Hayan. Furthermore, it expected to take deliveries from Egypt and Iran.

It should be noted that Iranian Acting Petroleum Minister Gholamhossein Nozari recently stated that his country and Syria had signed a preliminary agreement to import at least two billion cubic meters of gas a year. (ANI)
