MOSCOW - Iran, which faces tightening sanctions on its oil industry aimed at halting development of its nuclear program, is looking to export more gas to India and Pakistan to make up for a fall in crude exports, a National Iranian Oil Company official said.

"We are trying to compensate the less (oil) export," NIOC's managing director for research and technology, Mohammad Ali Emadi told reporters at a Moscow conference on Wednesday.
