Subsea pipe-laying operations are underway to connect the Persian Gulf’s largest island, Qeshm, to the national gas grid, managing director of Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company said.
“Of the 60-km 30-inch pipeline, from Bandar Abbas to Qeshm County in Hormozgan Province, 20 km are now being laid at a depth of 3,000 meters on the Persian Gulf bed with the horizontal drilling method by domestic contractors,” Reza Noshadi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
The existence of hydrocarbons, the strategic Strait of Hormuz, proximity to Oman Sea, connection to national electricity network and access to Central Asia markets are among advantages of Qeshm that reinforce its strategic location as a hub for oil, gas and petrochemical export.
