Pipeline Transfer Capacity to Increase 300 mcm/d

Gas transfer capacity will rise by 300 million cubic meters per day as next year's budget provides enough funds for construction or extension of three gas trunklines (IGAT-3, IGAT-9 and IGAT-11) until 2017, director of planning at the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) Hassan Montazer Torbati said Sunday.
"Work on these pipelines will be carried out in line with development of new phases of the South Pars gas field," Shana quoted Torbati as saying.
“These operations are projected to increase pipeline transfer capacity to a billion cubic meters per day in the next three years”, the NIGC official stated. Under the 2nd article of the budget bill, NIGC is authorized to spend more than 17 billion dollars on its development projects through 2017. Also, the second line of IGAT-6, at a length of 610 km and a transfer capacity of 110 mcm/d, will be built across Assalouyeh-Bidboland-Ahvaz part of the national gas pipeline network, consisting five compressor stations.
IGAT-9, with a 1.863 km length, starts from Assalouyeh and crosses Ahvaz, Dehgolan and Bazargan through 17 compressor stations, while IGAT-11, with 1,200 km length, originates from Assalouyeh and is linked to Mashhad-Tehran 48-inch pipeline after crossing Bushehr, Fars, Yazd, Esfahan and Semnan provinces.
