Russia reacts to claims on Iran limits on Caspian resources

TEHRAN, Nov. 03 (MNA) – The Russian embassy in Tehran has rejected the recent claims over Iran's restriction for extracting Caspian sea gas resources.

Referring to recent claims made by Ardeshir Dadras, Head of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Association, Russian Embassy in Tehran announced that these statements are not true.

Making such statements was aimed at undermining the friendly relations between Russia and Iran, the Russian embassy said in its Twitter account.

Earlier, the  Head of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Association had said that according to an Iran-Russia agreement, as long as Iran's gas balance is positive and production is in the proportion to domestic consumption, Iran does not have the right to extract Caspian gas resources.

According to this agreement, Iran does not have the right to extract from 8 large gas wells in the Caspian Sea, which is in the waters of Iran, he had claimed.
