Tehran, Iran, February 10
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Iran is testing the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) for the generation of electricity, the first of which was performed at the Chabahar Power Plant in southeast of the country.
Two to 2.5 mcm/d of CNG is being delivered to the power plant without using a pipeline, Distribution Director of the National Iranian Gas Company Said Momeni told Mehr news agency February 10.
Tankers carry the gas from source stations to the power plants where storage facilities have been launched, he said.
Momeni underlined that this method is a handy way to take gas to remote areas where stretching a pipeline costs too much.
