Iran will pump over 20 million cubic meters of gas per day from Shourijeh and Sarajeh gas storage facilities in winter, said managing-director of the Natural Gas Storage Company, Masoud Samivand.
“Based on the Fifth Five-year Development Plan, gas storage facilities are in charge of providing enough gas to meet 14 percent of the country’s total consumption,” he said.
Samivand went on to say that, based on the plans made by this company, it would be possible to get more than 20 MMcm/d of gas from Shourijeh and Sarajeh facilities this year.
“In case of constructing a 40-million cubic meters refinery for Shourijeh facility and another 20-million cubic meters facility for Sarajeh facility, the country will even be able to pump 60 million cubic meters of gas to national network,” Samivand added.
