All the gas processing plants in Assaluyeh region will be linked to each others through a 32 inches 100 kilometers pipeline, managing director of Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC), Mr. Souri announced here.
He noted the pipeline would be constructed with the aim of increasing flexibility and stability in gas production from the South Pars gas field phases, Iran’s SHANA news agency reported.
He went on to say that based an order by the minister of petroleum, Seyed Masoud Mirkazemi a 100 kilometers gas pipeline would be constructed starting from the phase 12 in Kangan region linking all the onshore gas processing plants of the South Pars gas field phases to each others.
‘By construction of the 32 inches pipeline, whenever one of the gas processing plants in Assaluyeh get out of circuit due to technical problems, its gas will be transferred to adjacent plants for processing or to oil fields for injection,’ POGC managing director said.
