NIGC said that gas transfer capacity will rise by 300 million cubic meters per day under the budget legislation which provides enough funds for construction or extension of IGAT-6, IGAT-9 and IGAT-11.
Planning Director at the National Iranian Gas Company Hassan Montazer Torbati said construction of the aforementioned pipelines will advance in line with the development of new phases of the South Pars gas field.
“Construction of this three gas pipeline will raise gas transfer capacity of the country to one billion cubic meters per day within three years,” Torbati added.
Under the budget bill, NIGC is authorized to spend more than 17 billion dollars in its projects in next three years.
