Compressed natural gas consumption rose by 10 million cubic meters per day in June compared to March, head of CNG department at the state-run National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company said.
“CNG consumption fell to 10 mcm/d in March and February due to closedowns to control the coronavirus. However, use of this cheap and environmentally-friendly alternative fuel registered 100% growth in June and approached 20 mcm/d, the same volume the plague,” Mohammad Hossein Baqeri was quoted as saying by Fars News Agency.
As soon as Covid-19 related traffic restrictions were eased, daily CNG consumption is rising and is projected to exceed 24 mcm/d by the end of July, Baqeri said.
