    Ministry of Electricity Announces The Loss Of 7600 Megawatts Of Energy Production

    January 24, 2022 - Iraq News Gazette


      23 January 2022 (NINA) Baghdad The Ministry of Electricity announced the loss of 7600 megawatts of energy production due to the decline in gas emissions supplied and the weather conditions.

      A statement by the ministry stated that "the electric power grid is still greatly affected by the decline in the gas supplied and the reduction in its rates, as well as the extinguishing of the Iranian lines carrying energy to Iraq, which led to a loss of (1100) megawatts."

      It added, "Today, Saturday, 50 percent of the national gas was reduced from the capacity of the Zubair fields, West Qurna/1, North and South, due to bad weather, and thus the lost capacity due to low gas pressure becomes about (6500) megawatts."

      The statement continued, "The lost capacity of Iranian lines is about (1100) megawatts, which casts a shadow over the decline in the hours of supplying electricity."
