Baku, Azerbaijan, March 18
By Emil Ilgar - Trend:
Iran is carrying out gas exploration in its north-eastern Soufikom region, which is bordering with Turkmenistan.
Yousef Etemadi, director for exploration at the Khazar Oil Company, said the gas exploration reached 2,000 meters of depth, SHANA news agency reported.
"We expect to hit gas reserves if the operations are successful. But this is just a probability," he added.
The 56th rig of Iran's National Drilling Company started operations in the region in December 2015.
The rig is expected to end its operations in spring this year.
