Lawmakers laud 13th administration’s energy record

SHANA (Tehran) – A number of Iranian lawmakers hailed the 13th administration’s performance in the energy sector.

The Parliament’s Energy Committee chairman said the incumbent government has managed to increase oil exports and earn more revenues.

Fereydoun Hassanvand added the statistics released by the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and the Plan and Budget Organization (PBO) show Iran has sold more oil thanks to the 13th administration’s policies and energy diplomacy.

He shifted to the “desirable” measures the 13th administration has carried out to redress energy imbalance and make investment in different areas.

“Constructive” cooperation between knowledge-based companies and the government was also raised by Hassanvand, who said the Oil Ministry has done a great job in this regard.

Talking to SHANA, Hossein Hosseinzadeh, a member of the Parliament’s Energy Committee, also praised the 13th administration’s achievements in the energy sector and said the project for the development of extraterritorial refineries was for the first time implemented by the 13th administration.

The Iranian experts’ current engagement in extraterritorial projects is among the strategies to neutralize the sanctions, he pointed out.

The parliamentarian pointed to increased gas production and exports, uninterrupted gas supply to the household sector in winter, and fuel supply despite high consumption and imbalance as other achievements of the Oil Ministry.

Hadi Beiginejad, another member of the Parliament’s Energy Committee, told SHANA the previous administration said “it is not possible to sell even a drop of oil and collect its revenue due to sanctions”, while the country’s oil exports have soared under the 13th administration without any agreement [the revival of the Iran nuclear deal].

Based on the released figures, the oil industry ranked first in terms of investment, revealing the 13th administration has carried out effective measures for building the infrastructure in different sectors, including the oil and gas industry, he concluded.
