SHANA – The Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company (IGEDC) has planned to invest €245 million on construction of a gas pipeline from the southeastern city of Iranshahr to Chabahar.
IGEDC CEO Hassan Montazer Torbati said the 290-km pipeline will be commissioned by March 2020, end of the next Iranian calendar year.
He said 56-inch, 42-inch, 20-inch and 16-inch pipes will be used for construction of the line.
