14 gas storage development projects underway across Iran

Teheran, April 26 - Neftegaz.RU. Managing Director of Iran Gas Engineering & Development Company Reza Noshadi has said 14 gas storage facility development projects are currently underway across the country, the local Shana reported.
According to Noshadi:
  • In addition to the geographical distribution of the mentioned projects all around the country, they also have unique features in terms of the required technology and complexity of operations
  • Storage in a salt dome and water reservoir are 2 of the mentioned projects which are being conducted for the 1st time in the country, while Ghezel Tappeh Reservoir is also one of the country’s most exceptional hydrocarbon fields in terms of temperature and pressure
  • The development of such fields significantly improves the skills of Iranian engineers and leads to the integration of knowledge and technology in the country
  • We need to attract experts and experienced engineers to manage and implement these strategic projects
Noshadi further stressed the importance of timely implementation of storage development projects and called for the allocation of human resources needed to fulfill commitments on time.

Following the development of the South Pars gas field and the increase in the country’s gas production capacity, the construction and development of the country’s gas storage facilities have become a top priority.

In this regard, the Oil Ministry has been following a comprehensive plan to increase the country’s gas storage capacity to 6.5 billion m3 (bmc) by the Iranian calendar year 1402 (starting in March 2023).
The country’s current gas storage capacity stands at 3.25 bcm.
