Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company (IGEDC) Hassan
Montazer Torbati said the country can bring the number of its gas storage facilities
to seven from only two currently.
Speaking to Shana, the official said the facilities will be added to
Shourijeh and Sarajeh which are storing gas each with 5 and 4 bcm of storage
capacity for consumption in winters.
He said National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) is carrying out studies on
the facilities across the country.
The official said the salt dome in Kashan is one of the candidates for
construction of a storage facility which is under studies.
There are other regions that can hold natural gas which are being considered
by NIGC as well, the official added.
