Natural Gas Distribution and Consumption
Besides Iran's integrated and vast gas distribution network in home and business sector which consumes the lion’s share of the produced and processed natural gas, there are some other sectors including power plants, major industries and petrochemicals that consume a significant amount of the processed gas. The share of gas in the country’s oil and gas product basket has reached 72 percent so far and is expected to continue to grow in the near future.
Until the present time, the total length of over 310 thousand km of urban gas distribution network has been constructed which is responsible for providing gas to 1082 cities and 23000 villages. At present, around 25 million households enjoy natural gas.
