“At present, we are self-sufficient in the production of diesel fuel and we have no need to import it,”Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on Saturday.
Referring to the development of Iran’s giant South Pars gas field in the Persian Gulf, Zanganeh described the project as an unprecedented and the largest project in the country’s natural gas industry.
He expressed hope that Iran will add 100 million cubic meters of natural gas to its national network by the end of the current Persian calendar year (ending March 20, 2015).
Iran has been trying to enhance its gas production by attracting foreign and domestic investment, especially in its South Pars gas field.
South Pars is part of a larger field that is shared with Qatar. The larger field covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, 3,700 square kilometers of which lie in Iran’s territorial waters (South Pars) in the Persian Gulf. The remaining 6,000 square kilometers, referred to as the North Dome, are located in Qatar’s territorial waters.
The Iranian oil and gas field contains 14 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, about eight percent of the world’s reserves.
