Iran’s daily gas production at its highest

According to Hamidreza Araghi, Managing Director of Iran National Gas Organization, Iran’s gas production will exceed its consumption volume with a daily production at 637 million cubic meters (mcm) in 2015, up 58 mcm from 2014’s, thanks to the completion of new gas production facilities. “Concurrent with the 100 million cubic meter gas production, Iran’s gas transmission capacity has also increased with the use of new gas pressure booster stations and pipelines,” Araghi said at a press conference in Tehran. Recent developments would have sent the daily output to a record 666 mcm, that’s why “by early 2018, the country’s processing, transmission and distribution of gas capacity will increase to 330 billion cubic meters per year,” Araghi added.
