Iran's leadership over Conference

to help set up gas OPEC Retriever: Hameed Shaheen ISLAMABAD – Iran's leadership over the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) can accelerate setting up an OPEC-like entity, despite a long way ahead , IRNA says. GECF is a conference of the world’s leading gas producers including Algeria, Bolivia, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Iran, Libya, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Kazakhstan, Iraq, the Netherlands and Norway as observer member. They account for 67 percent of the world proved natural gas reserves. Since the establishment of the GECF in 2001, there has always been speculation that some of the world' s largest producers of natural gas, in particular Russia and Iran, intend to create a gas cartel equivalent to OPEC which would set quotas and prices.

Iranian officials have explicitly expressed strong support for a gas cartel and the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on January 29, 2007 urged Iran and Russia to set up OPEC-style cartel for natural gas. The speculation was again raised when the ministers met on April 9, 2007. The 6th Ministerial Meeting of the GECF established an expert group, chaired by Russia, to study how to strengthen the GECF which meant that in the long term, the GECF will emerge as gas OPEC. On 11 December 2009, Russia' s Energy Minister Sergey Shmatko stated: ' Today we can speak about gas OPEC as a fully fledged international organization. Creation of the ' Gas OPEC' was one of the topics of the first GECF' s summit in Doha, Qatar on November 15, 2011. While, Iran was hosting the 15th ministerial meeting of GECF on November 3, 2013 in Tehran, Mohammad Hossein Adeli, the former governor of

Iran’s central bank was chosen as the 13nation group’s secretary-general for a two-year term. After being elected, Adeli expressed hope that he would be able to prepare the GECF secretariat for facing challenges and using opportunities so that the forum would be turned into a reliable world platform. In the meantime, Iran was selected to host the third summit of the GECF at the ministerial meeting of the Forum in Moscow. Despite the fact that the gas market is dominated by long- term contracts but Iran' s leadership over the GECF can help speed up the formation of international gas cartel. Analysts assess the high presence of GECF member states in Iran' s 19th Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Exhibition Oil Show 2014 which took place on May 69,2014, a beginning for cooperation of the member states.
