Iran reduces gas supplies to Iraq

26 May, 2023

The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity announced on Tuesday that Iran reduced gas supplies to Iraq by about 20 million cubic meters during the past two days, according to a statement cited by the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

The statement explained that there are no late dues or debts Iraq should pay for the gas it imports from Iran.

A delegation headed by the Iraqi Minister of Electricity will visit Iran next week to overcome possible obstacles, the statement revealed.

Iraqi officials will inform the Iranian side that Iraq will soon be at the peak of electricity consumption due to summer’s high temperatures, according to the statement.

The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity set a plan to reach electricity production of 24,000 megawatts per day, the statement illustrated.

The demand for electric power could rise to 35,000 megawatts, and this will negatively affect the Iraqis because electricity production will not be sufficient for consumption in Iraq, the statement mentioned.

The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity emphasized that its work will continue to improve and develop the national grid.
