Tehran (ISNA) - In a ceremony that was held on Government's Week, Iran's President inaugurated three major national projects worth about €4.7 billion in the oil sector.

On Monday, President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated the plan for the development and improvement of gas dispatching centre and sixth and ninth national gas transmission lines, the first phase of Bushehr Petrochemicals and the 500 MW West Karun Combined Cycle Power Plant and its transmission lines and substation in a video conference.

The sixth national gas transmission pipeline has a daily transmission capacity of 110 million cubic metres of gas from South Pars to the western provinces of the country.

Relying on the capability of local experts, this project has been successful and its length is about 1200 km, which transports South Pars gas through Bushehr, Khuzestan, Lorestan, Ilam and Kermanshah provinces to Dehgolan city in Kurdistan province.

The 125-km pipeline is the ninth national gas transmission with a capacity of 60 million cubic metres, which starts from 32 km west of Behbahan and extends to the border of Bazargan and northern Maku.

The construction of these pipelines, in addition to being stable in supplying gas to the cold provinces of the country, also has an export advantage and plays an important role in energy exchanges with countries in the region.
