According to Noshadi, the company is expected to start construction of the Chilvand gas pressure facility in Iran’s Ardabil Province in north-west of the country.

“Also, the construction of the 2nd plant of Ilam Gas Refining Company in Ilam Province (western Iran) is expected to be completed during the current year,” he added.

The CEO noted that the company also plans to launch the construction of a gas pipeline from Minab County to Kuh-Mobarek city of Jask County in Iran’s Hormuzgan Province in the south of the country, in order to export gas from Iran to Oman.

“The laying of a 400 km long gas pipeline from Iran’s Isfahan Province to the Qom Province is also among the company’s plans for the current year,” he said.
