Following plans to sustain natural gas supply to households in the winter, the National Iranian Gas Company has cut gas delivery to cement factories, the head of Cement Employers Association said.
“Most manufacturers have started to tap into alternative fuel (mazut), so production level has not been negatively affected yet,” Abdolreza Sheikhan was also quoted as saying by ISNA on Friday.
“The National Iranian Oil Company has made a pledge to provide the 77 cement factories in the sector with as much liquefied fuel as they need. Mazut inventories in factories are full and there are no worries regarding the fuel for the next 20 days,” he added.
