Hassan Yahyazadeh ganji, Tayebeh Saheb, Asadollah Sahranavard
The social and economic development of every country and its industrial growth requires three factors which are work force, investment and energy. However, it is not easy to determine the importance degree of these factors, but for a country such as Iran which is rich in energy, the role that is related to the energy, is more important so that it is the development engine. The present article tries to have a comprehensive review of the LNG chain and the legal issues regarding LNG in Iran. The research shows that structuring of the LNG project will not be effective unless the project companies consider several multi-faceted factors. This role becomes even harder in Iran because the economical, political and legal system of Iran is far from the basic stages to develop and attract LNG investors so that the foreign investors should take these risks into account when making decision to invest in Iran.
