TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iran’s oil industry activities have been going on strongly in the past two years since the US pulled out of the nuclear deal and reimposed sanctions, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on August 3.
Addressing a ceremony to launch gas supply to 77 Iranian villages on Monday, Zanganeh hailed the amount of Iran’s export of petroleum products, saying gas distribution projects had facilitated exports of petroleum products, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported.
“The amount of the exports of petroleum products in Iran have been unprecedented thanks to gas distribution projects,” he said.
“Activities in the oil industry have continued vigorously for more than two years since the sanctions were imposed,” he added noting, “We stand firm and buoyant to serve the goal of serving the people,” despite the existing problems.
noting that two years and three months have passed since the severe sanctions were imposed on Iran, the minister said, during this period not only no plans in the oil industry had halted, but “we have also started new plans.”
Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said that thanks to the increase in the gas production and gas supply in the country, the numbers for exporting products are unique.
