Sunday, 27 September 2020_The National Iranian Gas Transmission Company (NIGTC) says supply at two natural gas storage facilities in the country have increased by more than 30 percent to respond to potential increase in demand during cold winter months.

Iran lifts supply at gas storage facilities by over 30%: NIGTCMehdi Jamshidi Dana, who serves as the CEO of NIGTC, said on Saturday that total current supply at Sarajeh and Shurijeh gas storage facilities, located in center and northeast of Iran, respectively, had reached 2.195 billion cubic meters (bcm).

“This increased storage would be a massive help to reliability of the country’s gas transmission in winter,” said Jamshidi Dana.

The official said gas supply at Shurijeh, located in Sarakhs near the border with Turkmenistan, has increased by 48 percent to reach 1.385 bcm.

The development marks a major breakthrough in Iran’s efforts to reduce reliance on imported gas from Turkmenistan during cold months to supply it to populated regions along the Caspian Sea and in northeast Iran.
