Low pressure gas will be pumped at said station to be installed on Guneshli-11 platform next year. This gas will be pumped in amount of 1.5mln m3 a day to intake of said station at Neft Dashlari to get pressurized and delivered ashore.

High pressure gas produced directly from wells will be pumped to the outlet of the station and further ashore.

Under the agreement concluded with WB, a gas treatment program will be worked out to prevent its emission to the atmosphere. The program suggests installation of gas compressor station on Guneshli-4 platform to pressurize gas and pump it ashore. Such station will enable produce up to 4.9bn m3 a year against current 2.2bn by 2010.
