Gazprom Talks With Iran

Russia and Iran have held talks on building an underground gas storage facility near Tehran, a Gazprom executive said.

"Last year preliminary negotiations were conducted with Iranian specialists on the question of building, with our participation, an underground gas storage facility in the Tehran region," Valery Khloptsov, chief executive of Gazprom subsidiary Podzemgazprom, said in an interview published Wednesday. "I think that … this project will be realized because our foreign partners are very interested in this," he added.

Iran abandoned plans to work with Gazprom on the Azar oil field last October, despite years of talks.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
