MAPNA Group has signed a deal with Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company (IGEDC) on storage development project of Shurijeh D Reservoir in Khangiran Field, Khorasan Razavi Province.
The agreement was signed in a ceremony held on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, in presence of senior officials of IGEDC and MAPMA Group.
Due to the need to supply gas in the north and northeast of the country in the cold seasons of the year and the estimated sharp decline in production in the Mozdouran reservoir by 2025, the Iranian oil minister has instructed the development of storage facilities of Shurijeh Reservoir D, which is the main feedstock supplier of Khangiran Refinery in Sarakhs Region of Khorasan Razavi Province.
During the ceremony, MAPNA Group President Abbas Aliabadi pointed to the significance of energy and its effect on the economy and daily life and highlighted the problems in the field of productivity in production and consumption.
He then referred to the significance of electricity and gas and called for resolving the issue of unbalance in supply and consumption and the necessity for reduction of ratio of energy consumption to GDP.
Meanwhile the CEO of Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company said that the capacity of Shurijeh Gas Storage Facility is planned to reach 40 million cubic meters per day.
He added, “Today, 1,870 kilometers of large-sized pipes are on the agenda of Iran Gas Engineering and Development Company. The number of stations that are being built at the same time has doubled and this is a record, so today the country’s gas industry is a respectable peak.”
Noshadi noted, “Shurijeh field, whose current storage capacity is 20 million cubic meters per day, is to be increased to 40 million cubic meters per day and from 2.25 billion cubic meters of storage to 4.5 billion cubic meters.”
