East Azarbaijan Province to Turn into Gas Industry Hub

TEHRAN, Aug 27 (Shana) – Plans are under way to turn East Azarbaijan Province into a hub for production of gas industry equipment and parts, a local gas official says.

Valiollah Dini, managing director of the province's gas company, said the self-sufficiency instilled in the province has raised hopes for turning East Azarbaijan into a hub for gas industry equipment and parts. 

Speaking at a ceremony to spontaneously launch several major gas distribution projects in northwestern Iran, Dini said East Azerbaijan is the second province in Iran where a committee for development of oil and gas technologies has been formed at the company and is seriously pursuing its goals. 

"Efforts have been made to turn to province into an industrial hub for gas distribution equipment and parts so that self-sufficiency in obtained in the sector and more value-added is generated as a result," he said. 

He said the province's gas company is in close contact with the local universities and research centers, saying the company is currently supplying natural gas to 100% of the province's urban population and 88% of the population in rural areas.
