Iran increased its natural gas production by 9.3 percent in 2017 year-on-year, according to a senior official at the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) on Monday.
IRNA, Iran's official news agency, reported that the country produced 214 billion cubic meters of natural gas last year, said Gholamraza Bahmannia, the NIGC director for coordination and supervision on production.
Bahmannia added that the increase in production in the South Pars gas complex 'has been very satisfactory.'
The production of subsidiary products, including gas condensates, ethane, and sulfur has reached its peak in the new phases of the South Pars complex, according to Bahmannia.
The existing capacities shows that the production of subsidiary products can further increase this year, he added.
