Azerbaijan, Baku, Jul.9/ Trend F.Milad/
The Iranian deputy oil minister has said that the country hit new records in repairing damaged pipelines as a result of explosions.
Javad Owji added that on February 10, a terrorist attack blasted pipelines carrying natural gas to a number of provinces aiming to disrupt the flow of gas to cold weather provinces, but experts of the National Iranian Gas Company managed to repair the damaged pipelines in less than 24 hours, the Mehr News Agency reported.
This is while Turkey repairs such damaged pipelines in 10-20 days, he noted.
Iran's major gas pipeline was blown up last February, by an explosion, which the head of the parliament's national security committee, Parviz Sorouri charged 'enemies as being responsible.
The apparent bomb attack was the second incident in two months. Previously simultaneous explosions hit three different points on a gas pipeline within about 60 miles of the holy city of Qom.
He added that 13 refineries in the country purify 540 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.
Some 12,750 villages and 930 cities nationwide have been supplied with natural gas, he noted.
