Iran to implement 21 projects in gas transfer region 3
Head of gas transfer region 3 announced that 21 projects including reconstruction, repair and optimisation will be
carried out in the region by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (started March 20, 2004).
Hassan Abdolkarimi noted that the projects will cost 212.112 bn rials. He added that doing basic repairs at Qom 1 and Qom 2, Arak, Saveh and Qazvin compression stations were among the projects.
Abdolkarimi also mentioned repair of gas pipelines, changing class of gas transfer lines, reconstruction of gas
pipeline buildings, rehabilitating pipeline covering, and improving ventilation system of the central building as
major projects to be carried out in the region this year.
The official noted that not observing safe distance from gas pipelines for construction was a major problem in gas transfer region 3, adding, "In such cases we would have to change gas pipeline class, which is very costly."
