The number of Iranian households, supplied with natural gas, will reach 23 million by mid-2021 that marks the end of the second term of the Hassan Rouhani government, the National Iranian Gas Company’s director for gas supply said.
“By the end of the current administration, more than 17.7 million households in cities and 5.3 million ones in rural areas will be connected to the national gas network,” Saeed Momeni was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Tuesday.
According to Momeni, about 14.06 million families in Iranian cities, or 95% of urban population, were provided with natural gas in 2013, when the 11th administration started.  
The official noted that the number of households in urban areas crossed 17.35 million about two months ago. He added that by mid-2013, about 2.3 million families in villages were supplied with gas, which equal 55% of all Iranians living in rural areas.
