Spokesman for Iraqi Ministry of Electricity Ahmed Musa stated that the imports of natural gas from Iran, which Iraq mostly depends on for electricity generation, had reached 40 million cubic meters (mcm) per day, reported the Iraq’s News Agency.

Musa said that Iraq would continue to ask for more supplies of gas from Iran as he insisted that the country’s power plants would face record demand for gas over the summer months.

He said Iraq will need 50-55 mcm/d of natural gas from Iran to be able to weather the summer demand, adding that Iran’s initial response to the request has been positive.

The announcement comes after Iranian Oil Minister Javad Owji said on last Thursday that Iran will increase the supply of natural gas to Iraq after the Arab country paid back its energy arrears.
