Azerbaijan's technical capability allows the country to purchase up to 2 billion cubic metres of natural gas from Iran every year.

According to the Head of the Azerigas Close Joint-Stock Company (CJSC) Alikhan Malikov, although currently there is no need to purchase gas from Iran, preparatory work is underway for it. So, technical issues will be addressed by April this year. It is also planned to construct a high-pressure Astara-Gazimammad gas main pipeline.

Azerbaijan transports 500 thousand cubic metres of gas to Iran daily and this volume is delivered to the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan, APA reports.
