Tehran - Managing Director of Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company said that progression of 170-km Damghan-Neka pipelines hit 65% and it will result in reinforcing both gas transmission to north of Iran and the network stability.

Referring to gas cut off in Turkmenistan in 2007-2008, Hassan Torbati reiterated that National Iranian Gas Company decided to support gas network in the north from three different points.

He added that the first point called Meyami-Dasht reinforces gas network of Golestan province and the second one was in Rasht. 

He said that the third point called Damghan-Neka is regarded as a difficult project since it is implemented in forests, mountainous areas and impassable roads.

He emphasized the fact that the mentioned pipelines help divide Gilan's consumptions from those of Mazandaran and more gas will be tyransmitted to Mazandaran.
