Gas flowing through Iran's IGAT 7 pipeline

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 13
-- Natural gas is flowing through the 907-km, 56-in. OD Iran Gas Trunkline 7 (IGAT 7) from Asalouyeh on the Persian Gulf to Iranshahr in the southern province of Sistan-Baluchistan, National Iranian Gas Co. reports.

The pipeline can carry 1.8 bcfd of gas produced in South Pars offshore gas field under design pressure of 1,305 psi, transiting four other provinces: Bushehr, Fars, Hormozgan, and southern Kerman. Flow began Aug. 23.

According to NIGC officials, capacity is to be expanded to 2.9 bcfd.

A planned extension of IGAT 7 would enable Iran to export gas to Pakistan. If completed, the system would have 1,100 km of pipeline in Iran and 750 km in Pakistan (OGJ, Feb. 25, 2010, p. 29).

In June, the countries signed an agreement for initial deliveries of 750 MMcfd, beginning in 2014.
