A senior Iranian official has called for conservative domestic use to increase the country's gas export potential.

During the opening ceremony for connecting 400 villages and a city in West Azarbaijan Province to the national gas network to mark Government Week (Aug. 24-30), Managing Director of National Iranian Gas Company Hamidreza Araqi said the country should optimize gas use, Shana reported on Tuesday.

"By the time the second phase of South Pars field is exploited, the total volume of natural gas produced in the country will be doubled and by institutionalizing fuel conservation culture, the country can get a higher share of the international energy market," he said.

The head of NIGC noted that using natural gas leads to economic development and said, "A considerable number of industrial units are supplied with natural gas, which increases value added and lowers air pollution."

Araqi named improvements in health and welfare, job generation and boost in revenues as advantages of using gas.
