A senior Iranian official, Ali Karani, has attested that oil and gas exports will increase by building energy complexes in the province of Khuzestan, according to IRNA.

So far, the Iranian Ministry of Industry, Mine, and Trade has given permission to build energy complexes in the province. With this said, the decision is still subject to all-out support from the necessary governing bodies.

Khuzestan is a province in southwestern Iran and represents an important energy hub that is home to an array of oil, gas, and petrochemical projects.
