The Mehr News Agency quoted Seyyed Reza Kasaeizadeh as saying that, “Oman has requested to develop Kish gas field to deliver the produced gas to their LNG units.”
“The negotiations are underway and the two sides have not yet reached any agreement on the exact amount of investment in the Kish gas field,” he added.
Omani ruler Sultan Qaboos bin Said, heading a high-ranking delegation, arrived in Tehran on Tuesday to hold talks on regional issues and discuss ways to expand ties between the two countries.
Previously the National Iranian Offshore Oil Company’s Managing Director Mahmoud Zirakchianzadeh had reported that Iran and Oman may establish a third party to develop Kish gas field.
Kish gas field is a giant gas field close to the Kish Island in the Persian Gulf.
It was discovered in 2006 and holds 59 trillion cubic feet of in-situ gas reserve, of which 45 tcf is recoverable. The field also holds 946 million barrels of condensate of which 331 million barrels are recoverable.
