Addressing at regular sessions of high ranking oil officials with media representatives, he said: With regard to preparedness of all NIGC’s divisions, gas supply will stand at desirable levels in the coming winter.
According to the report of the public relations of the NIGC, Owji stated that, more than 5 billion cubic meters of gas were exported to Turkey during the first six months of the current Iranian calendar year, which show one percent increase in comparison to the same period last year.
Meanwhile, during the aforementioned period, gas imports from Turkmenistan declined by 2.7 billion cubic meters, which show 52% decrease compared with the same period last year.
