Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct.28/ Trend F.Karimov/
Iran will start early production at the Kish gas field by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2014), the Shana News Agency quoted the field's Development Project Manager Homayoun Kazemeini as saying.
The early production plan aims to yield 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, he said.
The development plan of the Kish gas field started in 2007. The field holds around 66 trillion cubic feet of in-situ gas and 514 million barrels of condensates.
The Kish gas field is the largest non-shared natural gas field in the country.
The field is projected to yield 85 million cubic meters of natural gas and 30,000 barrels of gas condensates per day.
In February, IRNA quoted former managing director of the National Iranian Oil Company Ahmad Qalebani as saying that infrastructure development and drilling operations are well underway at the gas field.
He added that two drilling rigs are operating at the onshore section of the field. To date, 13 wells have been drilled across the gas field.
