Energy, especially gas, is one of the areas of multilateral cooperation and interaction of actors in International Political Economy (IPE). It has culminated in forming primary basis of Gas OPEC by now. Based on a hypothesis made of two Neoliberal Institutionalism and Game Theory in IPE, integration and disintegration will be examined among gas producers, especially Iran, Russia and Qatar. The major claim of the article is that, in spite of some impediments, cooperation among above-mentioned countries is a functional and structural necessity. In addition, due to the role of I. R. of Iran in creating primary basis of Gas OPEC, there is a direct relationship between the gas production capacity of Iran, as a main rival of Qatar and Russia, and weakness or strength of Gas OPEC in the future.
