TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Gas Company's Director for transportation Mahmoud Loqmani announced the resumption of natural gas export to turkey after a halt for maintenance.
"Iran's gas exports to Turkey re-started today," Loqmani, a supervisor at one of the gas dispatching centers said on Thursday.
Iran shut its natural gas pipeline to Turkey on Tuesday for maintenance work following a technical hitch.
Loqmani said the gas export to Turkey resumed at a low pressure but it will reach normal volume gradually.
Iran is the second gas supplier to Turkey, after Russia, exporting between 15 and 18 million cubic meters of gas daily through the conduit, which runs from the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz to Ankara.
Earlier, Loqmani had said that Turkey's state gas company BOTAS was informed of the stop in gas flow.
