MOSCOW, Feb 19, 2008 (AFP) - The CEO of Russian gas monopoly Gazprom visited Iran on Tuesday for talks on joint projects in Iran and cooperation on natural gas sales by Moscow and Tehran, the company said in a statement.

Alexei Miller met Iran's Oil Minister Gholam Hossein Nozari and agreed on Gazprom's involvement in developing "two or three blocks" of the massive South Pars gas field in Iran, the statement said.

"It was agreed that the main lines for cooperation were extraction and development of oil and gas reserves, as well as joint activity in the transport, refinement and marketing of natural gas," it added.

Russia and Iran are two of the world's biggest natural gas exporters and the presidents of both countries have mentioned the possibility of creating an OPEC-like international gas cartel to control prices and supplies.
