The country’s oil and gas industry has made great success and achiements since two years ago, attributing a large portion of achievements to Oil Minister Javad Owji’s approach to managerial and macro issues, he emphasized, SHANA reported.
The NIGC staff take the helm of the country’s energy sector and SPGC enjoys a special status in decision-making process as the complex is producing the highest volume of gas in the country, the deputy oil minister underlined.
Elaborating on SPGC’s main tasks, he pointed to the reduction of gas flaring underscored by the president and the oil minister, calling for accelerating the implementation of projects for collecting associated petroleum gas (APG).
