3-Month Restrictions on Gas Supply to Cement Factories 3-Month Restrictions on Gas Supply to Cement Factories

Following plans to sustain and stabilize natural gas supply to households in the winter season, the National Iranian Gas Company has cut gas delivery to cement factories across the country.
IRNA quoted the company’s dispatching department as saying that as of December 6 gas quota for cement companies will be limited to 9,000 cubic meters per day for three months until March 6, 2020.
During the 3-month period cement manufacturers should either lower production levels or tap into liquefied eco-unfriendly mazut and diesel.
