Report summary

Iran has vast, economically competitive gas reserves including those from its share of South Pars, the world’s largest gas field. It also benefits from a favourable geographical location close to potential gas markets. However, the country exports less than 5% of its production. Exports have been limited by domestic demand and by stringent EU/US sanctions imposed on Iran’s energy and banking sectors in response to its nuclear programme.
