Iran to raise gas supply capacity

TEHRAN Oct 6 (Shana)–The capacity of Iran’s gas transmission will increase as four pressure booster stations are expected to come on-stream, managing-director of Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company said.

Ali-Reza Gharibi said the booster stations are scheduled to become operational by March 2015.

He added that 80 kilometers of Iran Gas Trunkline-10 is also to be constructed by that time. 

Earlier, Hamid-Reza Araqi, the managing-director of the National Iranian Gas Company, said the company has put on its agenda the completion of 10 booster stations by the end of the current year which is unprecedented under the sanctions. 

The stations are to be build in various parts of the country and will help boost the country’s gas supply capacity to a considerable extent, Araqi said.
