The pipeline that will carry natural gas from Iran to Iraq will be completed by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (started March 21, 2014), according to a report from Iran's PressTV.
The Managing Director of the Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company, Alireza Gharibi, said 7 million cubic meters (mcm) per day of natural gas will be delivered to Iraq initially, increasing to 40 mcm at peak.
The 100-kilometer, 48-inch pipeline runs from the Iranian village of Charmaleh, in Kermanshah, into the town of Naft Shahr on the border with Iraq.
