concerning supply of oil industry equipment and parts have been removed thanks
to implementation of the JCPOA back in January 2016.
we have seen the increase of oil and gas production in the past two years in
such a way that nearly 4 million barrels of oil is being produced currently and
the share of natural gas in the country's energy mix has augmented by almost
70%," said the official.
The official also
underlined the fast pace of completion of the South Pars projects, adding Iran is
currently producing 550 mcm/d of natural gas from the field it shares with
Qatar in Persian Gulf waters.

about to sign several contracts soon and hopefully a number of others will be signed
next [calendar] year," he said.
