TEHRAN- Hassan Montazer Torbati was appointed as the new managing director of National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), IRNA reported.

In a decree on Sunday, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh appointed Montazer Torbati to the post, replacing Hamidreza Araqi.

Montazer Torbati was previously the managing director of Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company.
