Iran's gas likely to be sent to Europe: Nabucco consortium

TEHRAN, Feb. 22 (ISNA)-Iran could be among suppliers of the required gas for Nabucco pipeline but it is up to countries whether to buy Iran's gas or not, the head of Nabucco consortium declared.

His remarks occurred where as some western media have already declared Iran's gas would not be used for carrying out the project.

Iran has already declared it is ready to export gas to Europe through Nabucco gas pipeline.

This pipeline will deliver gas from Caspian Sea region to Europe.

Last month the foreign minister declared Nabucco project can be one of the possible ways for Iran and EU to cooperate in energy-related fields.

The pipeline project is estimated to cost about 6.14 billion dollars and is to connect Caspian Sea region to Austria through Turkey by 2011.

Iran's cooperation in the project is affected by the decision made by European purchasing countries, the head added.

Russia, Turkmenistan, Iran, Iraq and Egypt are among selling counties.

Also the German company RWE was recently accepted to be the sixth member of Nabaccu project.
