Over 850 mcm gas injection into national grid sets new daily record, says minister

SHANA (Tehran) – Iran’s Oil Minister Javad Owji said record 851 million cubic meters (mcm) of gas were injected into the national network on Saturday.

He made the announcement during his visit to the Dispatching Department of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) in Tehran.

Gas has been continuously supplied in the four corners of the country although some provinces, according to the reports, have received 1.5-2 meters of snow, the minister pointed out and assured gas needs across the country will be met thanks to necessary measures taken earlier despite drop in temperature expected in the next two or three weeks.

Elaborating on the implemented measures, Owji said the country’s gas output has witnessed a 30 mcm/d increase when compared to the volume produced a year earlier, adding the increase was achieved as the South Pars phases and gas fields of the Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC) boosted their production and collected flare gases were added to the national output.

The storage of around 3.2 billion cubic meters (bcm) in facilities has also helped meet domestic needs, said the minister.
