A statement by the ministry, which Mawazine News received a copy of, stated, “The ministry, in light of its efforts to create a promising file for electrical energy and diversify its sources, to preserve the production that has been achieved, is the first of its kind since its establishment, coinciding with the days of the holy month of Muharram and the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, peace be upon him. With full preparations for the fortieth visit, the national system was exposed to an old and renewed challenge represented by the decline in Iranian gas emissions supplied to production stations in the central and southern regions from 49 million cubic meters per day to 8 million cubic meters, which led to a limitation of the loads of the national system and a loss of approximately (5,500) megawatts of power without knowing the reasons.”
He added, "The ministry has taken its urgent measures, including high coordination with the Ministry of Oil to pump additional quantities of alternative fuels in order to compensate for what the system lost from the supplied gas, which could affect the maintenance of the production momentum."
He pointed out that it "has conducted diplomatic contacts with the Iranian Ministry of Energy and its embassy in the capital, Baghdad, to clarify the circumstances that necessitate this decline in order to address the situation." Ended 29/A43
