Iran Oil Minister:

Tehran (IP) - On the sidelines of a meeting, Petroleum Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh referred to the purchase of Iranian gas by Iraq and said that using Iranian gas is very economical for Iraq because natural gas replaces diesel, which is more than twice the price of the gas.

Iran Press/Iran news: According to the Ministry of Oil, Zanganeh answered the question that the Iraqi Minister of Oil has stated that its country does not need Iranian gas and will cut it off in the future: "No, they have not said such a thing. They have signed contracts for gas production in Iraq because Iraq has the capacity to produce gas and can use it anyway, but this is time-consuming and now Iraqis are willing to receive a lot of gas from Iran."

Zanganeh also mentioned in his meeting with people about renting foreign boats and said: "The Ministry of Oil has generally banned the leasing of foreign vessels and has given priority to leasing domestically built vessels."

Regarding Iran's gasoline reserves, the oil minister said: "Iran's gasoline reserves had reached more than 5 billion liters in May, but now they have decreased due to exports."
