Jun 12, 2014 12:00 AM

Iran’s total gas storage capacity has reached 8 billion cubic meters per year, according to Managing-Director of Natural Gas Storage Company (NGSC) Masoud Samivand.

“Currently the infrastructure (needed) for storing 8 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year has been prepared in Shourijeh and Sarajeh gas facilities,” Samivand told the Tasnim News Agency.

Shourijeh storage facility, largest in Iran, will supply gas to North Khorasan, Khorasan Razavi, Mazandaran, Gilan and even Ardebil provinces in north, northeast and northwest of Iran. It will stock more than 700 million cubic meters of gas for possible withdrawal during the cold snap.

After completion of its second phase, Shourijeh storage facility will be able to take 20 million cubic meters and deliver 40 million cubic meters of gas per day, adds Tasnim News Agency.

Iran’s first gas storage facility with 3.3 billion cubic meters capacity was inaugurated in Sarajeh district, near the central city of Qom, back in January 2013.
