Daily natural gas consumption in the household sector has risen by 100% and reached 500 million cubic meters over the last few days, the head of the state-run National Iranian Gas Company’s Dispatching Department said.
“The upsurge is expected to continue unabated, as the weatherman has forecast cold spell in the coming days,” Mohammad Reza Joulaei was also quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry’s news portal.
NIGC injects close to 1 billion cubic meters of gas into the Iran Gas Trunkline (IGAT), of which 50% are used at homes, he added, warning that thermal power plants will have to start burning liquefied fuel if households do not reduce their gas use.
