The South Pars and North Dome, covering 9,700 sq km in the Persian Gulf, and shared between Iran and Qatar, is the world's largest gas field. According to the International Energy Agency, it holds an estimated 1,800 trillion cubic feet of in-situ natural gas.


The South Pars, covering 3,700 square km, is in the Iranian territorial waters, while North Dome, covering 6,000 sq km is in the Qatari territorial waters.


Seyyed Mahmoud Mohaddes, exploration director of National Iranian Oil Company, said a 5,000-meter well will be drilled to estimate the reserve in the new gas field.
