Iranian Oil Minister Javad Owji was present in the inauguration ceremony of several natural gas projects in the province.

“Today, three gas supply projects came on stream in Sistan-o-Baluchestan province along with five boosting gas pressure stations in other parts of the country,” he told reporters.

There are several other gas projects underway in the province including providing natural gas to 140 villages and 13 towns through pipeline, some of them have made 90 percent progress, Owji added.

He said that a gas pipeline from Iranshahr to Chabahar started operation to supply Chabahar power plant's gas needs and another gas pipeline, the first phase of Sarbisheh to Nehbandan pipeline, came on stream in order not only to reinforce gas pipeline network of the country in the east but to link 160 industrial units, including 2 cement factories, to the cross-country gas network, ending burning oil products in the area as feed.

Before this, the province's access to the natural gas network was limited, but the National Iranian Oil Company (NIGC) efforts to expand the gas supply network have changed the situation very positively which will result in rising welfare and employment in the province, Owji noted.  

The Oil Ministry's commitment to implementation of the social responsibility projects in the province include millions of dollars, of which a fraction has been implemented so far, he underlined.
