National Gas Distribution Network, Stable

TEHRAN (Shana) – Iranian Minister of Petroleum Javad Owji emphasized that the national gas distribution network is stable throughout the country.

Javad Owji, in a televised interview, said daily consumption of the household, commercial and non-major industries sectors has increased by 150 million cubic meters compared to the same period last year due to the extreme cold and stable weather, which is equivalent to 4 to 5 phases of South Pars.

Pointing out that 17,000 out of 97,000 gas subscribers in Torbat Jam County are facing the problem of gas pressure drop, he emphasized: “Considering the measures taken two months ago by the Ministry of Petroleum, we were not surprised in this regard. We tried to prevent more gas cuts in the country by changing the composition of the gas network, using pipeline loops throughout the country and optimal consumption by the people.”

The Minister of Petroleum clarified that 990 mcm of sour gas is extracted daily in the country, adding that about 848 mcm of this amount of gas is sweetened in 21 gas refineries and consumed in different sectors.

Regarding the news about the export of liquefied gas this month from the Ministry of Petroleum, Owji clarified: "Propane and butane liquefied gas (LPG), which are not capable of being injected into national gas trunklines, are currently being exported, in the context of export obligations.”
