TEHRAN- The managing director of National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) said that gas has been supplied to 291 deprived villages in less than six months.

Majid Chegeni said that the process of supplying gas to the rural areas has accelerated, especially with the approvals of the provincial trips of the president in the current government.

The official has previously announced that all of the country’s rural and urban population will have access to natural gas through the national gas network within the next two years.

According to Chegeni, currently over 98 percent of the urban population, as well as 90 percent of the country’s rural population, have access to natural gas through the national network.

Currently, only a few cities and about 7,000 villages across the country have not been supplied with gas through the pipeline network, the official has said.

“Currently, 1,260 cities and more than 35,000 villages in the country enjoy natural gas through the national network,” Chegeni announced.
