Iran Launches New gas pressure Stations

Iran has set in motion 3 new pressure booster stations since the start of the present calendar year that began on March 20 to ensure sustainable gas offer across the country.

Hassan Montazer Torbati, managing director of the Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company, told Shana that the stations were launched in southern Safashahr, central Naein and southern Khonj counties to ensure balanced distribution of gas throughout the country.

He said currently that the stations are operational, gas distribution via IGAT-8 (the 8th national gas trunkline) is being carried out in a very more sustainable manner with more space for maneuver.

He said IGEDC developed the stations by relying on domestic capabilities that led to considerable economic savings for the company in line with the policies of the economy of resistance.

Safashahr pressure station will pump 90 mcm/d of gas. The project was built with €860,000 and IRR307b, he added.

Naein station will deliver 110mcm/d of gas with an investment of IRR671b and €43.5m and Khonj pressure plant will deliver 110mcm/d of gas with IRR601b and €42.8m of investment.
