US Confirms Iran Sanctions Waiver For Azerbaijan Natural Gas Pipeline to Turkey, Europe

S&P Global Platts: The Southern Gas Corridor has received a waiver from US sanctions against Iran’s energy customers, an expected win for the project, designed to transport 16 Bcm/year of Caspian natural gas to Turkey and southern Europe while bypassing Russia.

Countries that depend on Iranian oil imports are continuing to press the US government for waivers. For more on this story visit or click
