Gas supplies from Iran’s South Pars Gas Complex (SPGC) to the country’s national gas network has increased 10% year-on-year (YoY), according to Tehran Times.

The amount of sour gas received from the South Pars platforms as feedstock from March 20-May 20 increased by about 9% compared to the same period last year.

Hadi Hashemzadeh Farhang, Managing Director of SPGC, stated that South Pars refineries account for refining 74% of gas produced in Iran. He also said that the annual overhaul operations of the refineries commenced on May 4 and are expected to be completed on September 21.

Earlier this month, Mohammad Asgari, spokesman for the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), said the country’s daily production of natural gas increased by 24 million cubic meters (mcm) from 650 mcm and currently stands at 674 mcm, representing a 3.5% increase.
