Iran has defined a six-point plan for the gas sector under the country’s sixth five-year economic development plan which starts in March 2015, director for planning of National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) said.
Hassan Montazer Torbati said NIGC has set six bases for the gas industry within the framework of the economy of resistance instructed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
He said that strategies have been worked out for the implementation of these policies.
“The general indicators of the objectives have been defined and the policies of the economy of resistance are followed up based on these indices,” said Torbati.
He said that NIGC is also pursuing the issue of self-sufficiency in the gas industry.
“Effective measures have been undertaken for the domestic manufacturing of basic commodities. Turbine manufacturing is among the activities of NIGC,” he said.
