Elf-Aquitaine candidate to operate Iranian Pars Sud gas field: report

PARIS, Sept 6 (AFP) - The French oil group Elf-Aquitaine has made proposals to operate one of the biggest natural gas fields in the world at South Pars in Iran, the Les Echos newspaper reported on Monday.

Elf had tended an offer to operate zones six, seven and eight of the reserves in the Gulf.

Elf was also preparing to make proposals for zones four and five, the report said, noting that operation of these resources would require the drilling of at least 10 wells, the construction of two off-shore platforms, and of two pipelines, each 105 kilometres (65.6 miles) long.

Elf might also make a proposal to operate the Mehr sector in the north of the Gulf.

On April 4, Elf-Aquitaine and the Canadian company Bow Valley signed a contract of 300 million dollars with Tehran to operate an off-shore field at Balal in the Gulf.
