GECF Invites Iranian Gas Industry To Hold Workshop On Indigenous Production

SHANA (Tehran) - Secretary General of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) Mohamed Hamel invited the experts of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) to hold a specialized training workshop on the indigenous production as the company is experienced in the field.

In a meeting with NIGC CEO Majid Chegeni which was held on the sidelines of the 28th Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition (Iran Oil Show 2024) on Wednesday, he announced the holding of a specialized training workshop on indigenous production and added the workshop will be held with the cooperation of 20 GECF member-states and some companies.

Hamel mentioned the experiences of the NIGC to provide and produce equipment through cooperation with new technology-based firms (NTBFs) as a very valuable achievement, and called for sharing the management experiences in the framework of a training course to the GECF Secretariat.

According to their domestic rules, some GECF member-countries do not have the opportunity to cooperate with foreign companies to meet some of their needs of goods for the gas industry, he noted adding that “If Iran’s management experience is shared by you to other GECF states, they can also have good achievements in their gas industry, and the cooperation will benefit both sides.”

The GECF secretary general also stated that Iran rivals Algeria in the field of gas export as the African state is also a gas exporter.

Chegeni, for his part, said the NIGC has several projects in the field of refineries, among which is the construction of the Ilam Refinery, the second phase of which will be completed by September 21.

In the last two years, 1,300 kilometers of gas transmission pipelines have been built and five gas pressure boosting stations have been set up, he noted.

Chegeni stated that his company has had significant activities in the field of supporting academic centers and NTBFs, as NIGC met some of its needs of gas industry equipment through the cooperation with the said firms.

In addition to 1,500 Iranian firms, a sum of 250 companies from 12 countries have taken part in Iran Oil Show 2024, whose motto is “Petroleum industry, production leap and technological optimization”.‎

Participants from the upstream, intermediate and downstream sectors of the oil industry, along with associations and unions of oil industry equipment manufacturers, first-time producers NTBFs are showcasing their achievements in the Iran Oil Show 2024, which is the most important Iranian event related to the oil industry.

Inaugurated on Wednesday, the exhibition will be open to visitors at the Tehran International Permanent Fairground every day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (0530 to 1330 GMT) until Saturday.
