TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh voiced satisfaction at the current state of petrochemical exports in Iran.

During a meeting with members of the energy committee of the Iranian parliament on Sunday, the official said the previous Iranian calendar year of 1397 which ended on March 20 was a good year for the oil industry. 

He added that over 92 percent of the Iranian population had access to natural gas, and over 99 percent of the urban population and 80 percent of the rural population had access to the item.

Zangeneh said the country faced no limits for supply of natural gas to the industrial and power generation sectors during the year.

He said Iran was able to export oil and gas condensate at the levels it exported in the previous years, adding, “The problem is that oil exports have become a political and security matter, not a practical one.”
