The National Iranian Gas Company ( NIGC ) said on Saturday that preliminary tests have been carried out over 50 kilometers of the final stretch of the pipeline which has been installed to take gas to Iran’s western neighbor.

The next test will be carried out over the remaining 47 kilometers of the pipeline – that runs from Charmaleh in Iran’s Ilam province and ends in the border city of Naftshahr – in the near future, NIGC added.

Exports will accordingly start once the final test over the remaining part of the pipeline is carried out, Shana news agency reported.
