Northern Iran holds plentiful oil, gas reserves, say geologists

TEHRAN, Oct. 27 (Mehr News Agency) -- Recent research by geologists shows that north, northeast, and northwest of Iran hold bountiful deposits of oil and gas.
Iranian geologists have carried out a research in Gorgan, the capital of Golestan Province, that reveals the region has been very active in the first era of geology, said Mohammad Qavidel, a top Iranian geologist.
Microfossil studies prove that Gorgan region was nestled in a vast ocean in the middle of the first geological era, he said, adding numerous creatures in the ocean have caused huge oil and gas reserves to come into existence in Gorgan, Caspian Sea region, and even northwestern Iran.
Naming northern Iran as strategic, he said preliminary investigations in these parts attest to existence of huge hydrocarbon reserves.
