Transit routes via Iran-Turkey-Greece-Italy and Iran-Iraq-Syria-Mediterranean-Europe are being analyzed, Iranian Deputy Petroleum Minister on Foreign Relations Hossein Nogrekar Shirazi said in an interview with Trend .
"Iran has the second largest gas stocks after Russia. We intend to implement a gas pipeline project to deliver gas to Europe and Asia. We are considering other projects on liquefied gas," Shirazi said.

Tehran may also consider taking part in the Nabucco pipeline project.
