Al-Kazemi directs three decisions to confront the electricity crisis and blames dependence on Iranian gas
According to a statement by Al-Kazemi's office, the crisis is due to the increased loads on the electrical network as a result of the severe cold wave, and due to the lack of imported gas from the Iranian side.
Al-Kazemi stressed that the previous governments did not diversify the sources of gas import and adopted one source, which led to a deterioration in the production of electrical energy in the event of a shortage or halt in gas imports, while the current government sought to sign several giant contracts to invest gas in various oil fields for the purpose of developing a final and national solution. to this problem over the next few years.
The statement added, "To make the current situation critical, the Prime Minister directed the Ministry of Oil to take several measures that would contribute to providing electricity to citizens and compensating for the shortfall in energy production, as he directed the following:
1- Increasing the share of private generators from gas oil fuel in areas experiencing multiple power outages.
2- Follow-up to ensure the distribution of the prescribed quotas for citizens of white oil and the provision of additional quantities at the outlets.
3- Providing liquid fuels for electric power production stations to compensate for the shortfall in gas imports from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
