Iranian Gas Consumption Double the Global Average

Iran is burning off record amounts of natural gas, which is way higher than the global average, the deputy for gas distribution at the National Iranian Gas Company said.
"While the average global gas consumption has observed a mild rise of 1.65% in the past three decades, Iran's demand of the fuel has hiked about 4.2% during the same period, which is alarming," Saeed Momeni was also quoted as saying by Shana.
"Such injudicious consumption pattern should be reconsidered by adopting efficient strategies," he added.
According to a report published early June by BP Statistical Review of World Energy, Iran natural gas consumption in 2017 stood at 214.4 billion cubic meters, up from 201.3 bcm one year ago. This marks an upward shift of 6.50%.
Reportedly, almost 40% of Middle East gas consumption take place in Iran, an unreasonably high level by any standard.
