BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: A total of 300,000 natural gas cylinders imported from China and Norway will arrive in Iraq before the end of this year, an official source said on Saturday.
“Before the end of the current year, 100,000 plastic natural gas cylinders will arrive from Norway,” a media spokesperson for the Iraqi Ministry of Oil, Aasem Jihad, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
The cylinders will be tested to ensure they are suitable for use in Iraq, Jihad noted.
The cylinders are made of a transparent material to enable users to see the level of liquefied gas inside the container, Jihad explained.
Meanwhile, nearly 200,000 metallic cylinders will arrive from China to meet the needs of consumers, he added.
