Project Description

The project in form of EPC is part of export gas pipeline which starts from Tabriz compressor station (in Iran) to the border of Armenia for total length of 115 kilometers. It transfers 10 million cubic meters of natural gas to Armenia per day in its initial stage. Total volume of 5.5 million square meters of soil and rock has been removed from job site which contains 40% rocky grounds.

From the work’s point of view and precision in mountainous region, this was very important and sensitive to reduce the execution time schedule from 900 days to 650 days in order to purge the gas on Christmas 2007.

Scope of work consists of 115 km gas pipeline, 8 main line valve stations, 125 km fiber optical cable and 2 launcher and receiver stations.
