Iran is on track to outproduce Qatar, the world's biggest liquefied natural gas exporter, at the vast natural gas deposit they share in the Persian Gulf.How much natural gas does Iran export?Almost nothing.Unlike its competitors, which have built far-flung pipelines and LNG plants to reach foreign buyers, Iran exported 8.4 billion cubic meters in 2015 while importing 7.5 billion cubic meters the same year.Iran exports less gas by pipeline than Myanmar or Kazakhstan, which together hold less than 1 percent of global reserves.volumes from South Pars?By March 2018, Iran's output at the giant South Pars gas field in the Gulf will have surpassed Qatar's production at the connected North Field, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on March 7 .To boost crude output, it needs gas – much more gas than it's currently injecting. Iran required 93 billion cubic meters of gas for reinjection in 2014 but could only allocate 32 billion, according to Cedigaz.
