    Russian energy giant Gazprom has not submitted any request to participate in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in Iran as yet, but the company is interested in such cooperation, a source in the company told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Gazprom is interested in the development of Iran's gas supply and joint production projects. In addition, the company has shown interest in the construction of LNG plants in Iran and in other countries, co-marketing of LNG and other gas projects.

    "At the moment we do not know about such requests. [We are] interested in considering options for possible  cooperation," the source said commenting on recent Iranian media reports about alleged requests submitted by Gazprom.

    In last November, Iran has offered 70 oil and gas projects worth more than $30 billion to foreign investors at an international conference in Tehran.
