255km Gas Pipeline Laid in S. Khorasan

Close to 255 kilometers of gas pipeline were laid in South Khorasan Province during the March-September period, said the managing director of South Khorasan Gas Company (SKGC) Farshid Dashti, Shana reported.
Eight villages joined South Khorasan’s gas network in the March-September period, meaning 85 percent of the province’s urban and 21.5 percent of its rural population have access to natural gas.
SKGC aims to stretch the pipeline by 300 kilometers by the end of the present Iranian calendar year (March 2015).
The pipeline supplies gas to 189 industrial units, with approximately 73 percent of its gas supplied to industries and power plants. Iran has turned into one of the biggest energy grids in the world, with 70 percent of the energy coming from gas. Daily consumption has reached 600 million cubic meters.
Last month, the largest gas storage facility in the Middle East with a capacity of 4.8 billion cubic meters was inaugurated in Razavi Khorasan Province. The Shourijeh facility off Sarakhs city near Mashhad will be one of the main gas storage points and will help boost gas supply in the northern and northeastern provinces during peak demand.
