Iran-Russia friendship turns sour over gas rivalry

Cheap supply from Moscow lures Tehran's traditional customers

TEHRAN -- Iran's key liquefied petroleum gas exports face a wave of competition as cut-price Russian cargoes tempt its traditional customers in countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Turkey.

The export of LPG, used in everything from heating and cooking to powering cars, is a much-needed source of income for the sanctions-hit Middle Eastern nation. But those shipments could be in jeopardy as a Western boycott over Russia's invasion of Ukraine forces Moscow to hunt out new customers for its resources, including LPG.
