The ministry has plans to invest about $90 billion in the upstream and downstream sector of the South Pars gas field in the current Iranian calendar year (started March 21), Iranian Petroleum minister, Dr. Mirkazemi announced.

He said that about $60 billion will be allocated to the upstream projects and about $30 billion to the downstream sector, Iran’s SHANA news agency reported.
