Soleimani said exploratory operations go on in entire part of Iranian oil and gas fields.
He made clear that explorations mostly focus on the Persian Gulf, the Oman Sea and Zagros.
He said all parts of the country are divided into seven exploration priorities and that the operations are currently excluded to the first to third priorities.
Soleimani said that the volcano-prone areas are given the last priority in the exploratory operations and the possibility of energy reserves in such areas is lower several times with safety risks.
