SHANA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said measures had been taken to bring Iran’s natural gas production capacity to 1 billion cubic meters per day by next Iranian calendar year which begins on March 21.
“We had higher aspirations and ambitions in this administration, but despite pressure of the enemies, we do not give up on our hopes and aspirations, and we will continue our efforts for the well-being of the people, prosperity, growth and expansion of justice in the country,” said Dr. Rouhani on Tuesday, reported President.ir.
He added: “In the days when the enemies had designs for our country, our nation came together and stood and resisted, and today, after two years of severe sanctions and economic pressure, the people courageously continue resisting.”
The President further stated that today we must pursue the goals with a sense of responsibility, saying: “We are in the winter…. Domestic consumption of gas is roughly 600 mcm which is a huge figure but gas is being supplied without any interruptions in the country. Moreover, there are plans to bring the country’s gas production capacity to a billion cubic meters per day next year which is a great achievement.”
