India seeks to develop Iranian gas field in Persian Gulf
India reportedly seeks to reach an agreement with Iran on the development of a major gas field in the Persian Gulf.
Indian media said Monday that New Delhi and Tehran may seal a deal on the development of the Farzad-B natural gas field in the Persian Gulf during a planned visit by the Indian oil minister to the Iranian capital next month.
According to Financial Express, India’s Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan would visit Iran on April 6-7 with the intention of signing a “definitive agreement” for the project.
The online business daily added that an Indian consortium led by ONGC Videsh (OVL) may develop the project if an agreement is reached.
