Today, Thursday, Electricity Minister Ziyad Ali Fadel revealed a move to sign an agreement with Iran that guarantees energy stability, while specifying the reasons for fluctuations in supply in the country.
Electricity Minister Ziyad Ali Fadel said, "Some investment stations depend on quantities of gas imported from Iran at a rate of (6000-7000) megawatts, and they enhance the processing of electric power hours."
He added, "Iraq is affected by the shortage of gas in Iran in the winter, and therefore the supply fluctuates at times," stressing, "The Iraqi side has paid the full sums for the Iranian gas supply."
He continued, "Iraq seeks to sign a clear agreement that guarantees the rights of the two parties and gives stability in the flow of gas quantities, and thus stability in the supply of electric power."
