Iran will activate 24 gas wells under Phases 9 and 10 at South Pars oil and gas fields by winter, SHANA reported quoting Managing Director of South Pars Company Mousa Souri as saying.

Currently Phases 9 and 10 alongside Phases 6, 7 and 8 (33 million cubic meter of gas) pump 50 million cubic meters of sweet gas per day for country's gas network.
