“In the changing conditions of the development of natural gas markets, Russia and Iran are playing on the same field, and the changes that are taking place in Iran’s oil and gas sector, which are reflected on the exporting potential of the country, will inevitably impact in the potential Russian participation in international natural gas markets. We are also likely to see changes in the arrangement of traditional competition among international organizations. The future of competition between Russia and Iran may depend on the following factors: first, Iran’s conscious decision to enter markets that Russia is seeking (comprised of mostly non-Europeans), and secondly, the prospect of coordinated actions within the framework of existing institutions in gas markets”, – Researcher of the Institute of Energy Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences Irina Mironova.
