Ministry Project to Raise Gas Consumption Rate in Industries

Petroleum Minister Gas Supply Advisor Mahmoud Astaneh told Shana that based on statistics, 18,000 major and minor industrial units consume 2.7 billion liters of varying kinds of oil products a year, so plans are made to substitute the fuel with gas.

He said replacing the fuel with gas is among goals of the Ministry of Petroleum, so a master plan has been designed in partnership with the Economy Council and the Plan and Budget Organization.
