TEHRAN August 20 (Shana)–Ten gas pressure booster stations are expected to become operational across the country by March 2015, managing-director of National Iranian Gas Company said.
“In the year the sanctions intended to restrict the country’s progress, NIGC is to operate 10 gas pressure booster facilities by the end of the current calendar year,” Hamid-Reza Araqi said.
He said that operation of these facilities would equal construction of a refinery.
Start-up of two gas pressure stations in central Iran will increase the country’s gas transmission capacity by 30 mcm, the head of Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company said recently.
Ali-Reza Gharibi said the pressure stations in Pol Kalehh and Dehaq in the central city of Isfahan will also improve gas supply in the Isfahan and neighboring Qom provinces.
He said the stations are expected to come on-stream in three months. They lie on Iran Gas Trunkline-IV.
