TEHRAN Sep. 13 (Shana)–Gas delivery from the upstream sector to gas refining companies reached 71.2 bcm during the first months of the current calendar year which started on March 21, up 15 percent year-on-year.
Mehdi Jamshidi Dana, chief coordinator at National Iranian Gas Company, said the increase in gas delivery stems from optimal supervision and shorter period of overhaul in three refineries.
“Fifty percent of this increase in delivery is due to the operation of phases 12 and 15&16 of South Pars [gas field],” he said.
Jamshidi Dana also said that gas delivery from Iran Gas Trunkline-5 (IGAT-5) has been 6 mcm higher than planned during the first five months of the current calendar year.
