Daily delivery of gas to national trunkline exceeds 850mcm: Minister

A total of 851 million cubic meters of gas were injected into Iran’s national trunkline on Saturday, the oil minister said, adding that the recorded figure was unprecedented for the gas industry of the country.
Javad Owji announced the above during his visit to the Dispatching Department of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) in Tehran as a cold spell and precipitation drive up the demand for natural gas, Shana reported.
About 1.5 to 2 meters of snow have fallen in some provinces of the country, the minister said, noting that under such conditions, the gas supply network has been stable, as no gas shortage has been reported in the country thus far.
“Compared to last year, the NIGC had a daily increase of 30 million cubic meters in production from South Pars phases and independent gas fields operated by the Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC),” he stated.
Gas storage was one of the concerns, and NIGC managed to store nearly 3.2 billion cubic meters in natural gas storage tanks for winter, Owji said.
Overhauling operations of gas refineries, trunkline, and pressure booster stations were carried out during the summer of the current [Iranian] year to have a sustainable supply of gas during the cold days, he concluded.
