Natural Gas transmission
Natural gas transmission from production origins and processing plants to various consumption points in various sectors of gas industry is of high sensitivity and importance. The total length of high-pressure gas transfer pipelines in Iran is around 37 thousand km. The pipeline's transfer capacity is estimated to be 600MCM per day based on the decisions adopted in the framework of the twenty-year outlook document, the length of pipeline from 37 thousand km should reach 70 thousand km. Hence, the Iranian Gas Transmission Company as one of the subsidiaries of the NIGC benefits from all vast executive- logistic facilities and various machinery to implement general projects in the realm of engineering, fundamental and detailed designing gas especially in relation with designing gas transfer pipelines, supply and distribution networks, pressure reduction stations all over the country while observing international standards.
Iranian Gas Transmission Company, which enjoys 78 active gas pressure-boosting stations, has taken measures to boost gas transmission capacity to meet the requirements of both domestic and export sectors through planning for construction of new stations. In case the above- mentioned projects 36,200 km of pipeline by 2025 are materialized, our pipelines will benefit from 140 active stations. The status of Iran's strategic gas reserves in south coast of Iran and the existence of common gigantic South Pars gas field shared with Qatar has made the Pars Special Energy Zone so important.
Iran's share from gas reserves in South Pars is estimated to stand at around 14.2 TCM (around 8 percent of the world's total gas reserves and 50 percent of Iran's gas reserves). Taking into consideration all the above - mentioned points, the Pars Special Energy Zone's position and role in development of the economy of the country is undeniable.
