$1.2b allocated to gas supply projects

Oil minister's advisor on gas supply said $1.2 billion have been allocated to extend gas supplies to industrial units which do not have access to natural gas.

Speaking to Shana, Mahmoud Astaneh said that last year 3.7 billion liters of liquid fuel was delivered as fuel to these units daily.

There are 20,000 industrial units in the country without access to gas, he said adding necessary steps have been taken to fund such gas supply projects.

Astaneh noted that in the four past months, gas supply services have been extended to 250,000 households.

Gas supplies to urban and rural areas which have no access to gas network will cost 12,000 billion rials, he concluded.
