Azerbaijan's gas flow to Turkey was halted due to an "incident" that happened on Wednesday, according to BP-Azerbaijan's spokeswoman Tamam Bayatly.
Before Azerbaijan-Turkey gas flow stoppage, Iran used to export 22-23 million cubic metres of gas per day to Turkey, currently the exports have increased to 30 million cubic metres of gas after the explosion, a spokesman for National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), Majid Boujarzadeh told ISNA on Saturday.
He also said that Iran has no limitation for exports to Turkey if the country demands more gas.
