Sistan-Baluchestan Gas Grid to Expand : In lines with efforts to provide the country’s far-flung and underprivileged regions with natural gas, plans have been devised to lay 1,400 kilometers of pipeline in Sistan-Baluchestan Province in southern Iran as of March the National Iranian Gas Company’s director for gas supply said.
“Close to 800 km will be laid in Zahedan and the rest is expected to be constructed in Zabol, which will branch off from the Zahedan pipeline,” Saeed Momeni was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency on Sunday.
Referring to the Zabol pipeline, he noted that it will be an extension of Iran Gas Trunkline 7 that has already been extended from Asalouyeh in Bushehr Province to Zahedan, pumping natural gas from the giant South Pars field in the Persian Gulf.
According to the official, as soon as the venture is fully launched in Zabol and Zahedan, the grid will extend toward Khash. Source: Financial Tribune
