Speaking in an interview with IRNA, Mehdi Gerami Shirazi added this comes as the two phases have recently come on stream.
He put the present daily gas delivery and exports by his refinery at about 46 mcm and over 40 mcm respectively.
Gerami Shirazi said the propane and butane production units of his refinery have begun production, adding, the refinery produces 1,080 tons of propane and 600 tons butane per day.
He gave the assurance the refinery is producing other products according to its scheduled program.
Currently, the giant gas filed is meeting about 70 percent of the domestic need to natural gas, he said, adding the inauguration of new SP phases by the government since 2013 as well as construction of onshore facilities have helped increase the country’s gas production significantly.
