Iran to examine shale oil, gas potential along its border with Iraq


The National Iranian Oil Co. will spend more than a year examining the potential for shale oil and gas reserves along Iran’s border with Iraq, an official said.

Hormuz Qalavand, exploration director at NIOC, said the company would use seismic technology in the project.

NIOC signed a $49.8 million deal with an unnamed private company to conduct the seismic surveys.

Shana, the Iranian Oil Ministry’s official website, reported Sunday it would take about 14 months to complete the work.

No information about the reserve potential was published by Shana.
