Natural gas is finally available through pipelines to Iran’s resort island of Kish in the Persian Gulf as the island prepares to host visitors from Qatar during the World Cup 2022 tournament.
Senior Iranian government officials attended a ceremony on Monday to celebrate Kish’s connection to the nationwide gas pipeline network.
Iran’s Oil Ministry’s news service Shana said the project to supply natural gas to Kish had taken four years and around $350 million to finish.
The report said, however, that natural gas supply through pipelines to Kish would allow the government to save around $320 million in annual spending to supply fuels to the island.
It said that Kish used to take delivery of 7,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and 500 million liters of gas oil per year to meet its energy demand.
