Gas trans­mis­sion line was dam­aged on Novem­ber 27 by land­slides and floods in the Hos­seinieh sta­tion of Andimeshk city, so gas ex­ports to Bagh­dad were also sus­pended, but with the re­moval of the dam­aged line, gas ex­ports to Bagh­dad was re­sumed and brought back to nor­mal from De­cem­ber 5.
