Coronavirus didn’t stop Iran’s oil production even a single day: Zanganeh

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Oil Minister, Bijan Namdar Zangeneh stressed that the country’s crude production hasn’t been halted even a single day despite the coronavirus outbreak and the sanctions.

Zangeneh noted the production of petroleum and natural gas did not stop at all, adding, electricity generation and water production are dependent on the production of petroleum and gas.

“If oil and natural gas are not produced, electricity and water will not be produced, either,” he said in ceremony where more than 140 respiratory devices used for coronavirus patients were donated by the petroleum ministry to hospitals in the country’s oil-rich regions.

Zanganeh added the ministry began to take action, from the very outset of the coronavirus outbreak, to move forward with the production of oil “as its activities were sensitive and it was not possible to shut down crude production.”

“We couldn’t stop work on islands and platforms as well as at operational units,” he said.

Zanganeh added the ministry has contributed to the production of disinfectants, etc., saying, “We will continue with our activities in the regard.”

“During this time, our colleagues at the oil ministry spared no effort to allay people’s suffering and pain,” the minister went on to say, according to IFP.
