TEHRAN: Khangiran gas field is one of Iran’s most remote gas fields with a 10 percent gas consumption in the country.
The gas station is located 25 km northwest of the Sarax border town and 180 km northeast of the capital, Mashhad, in the northeastern state of Korasan Razavi.
East Oil and Gas Production Company (ECOFC), a subsidiary of Iran Central Oil Field Company (ICOFC), is responsible for developing the farm.
Kangira is one of the largest jobs in Iran’s oil industry, so the distance between the two wells in this area is about 60 km.
The gas produced in the Kangira region of eastern Iran is the main source of gas production and supply, but it is one of the largest in the world due to its high sulfur content.
Khangiran Field is a highly volatile gas, with high pressure gas, 3.5 percent sulfur and 6.5 percent carbon dioxide, wells, utilities and pipelines, and hydrogen sulfide gas is highly toxic, and emissions are extremely dangerous.
Gas poisoning in this field should use masks and oxygen containers to check the condition of the wells.
Temperatures between -25 degrees in winter and +50 degrees in summer are another challenge in the Kangier region. The extreme cold of winter and the oppressive heat of summer make it very difficult to extract gas from this field.
Proximity to the border and distance from the region are also dangerous. The field shares a 256-mile[256 km]border with Turkmenistan, and the dispersal of wells in the production area makes it difficult to produce.
In the face of all these problems and dangers, the gas coming out of the well must be refined in a complex and costly process.
The gas from the Kanjiran field is filtered through the Shahid Hashimi-Najad Filter (known as the Kanjiran Gas Filter) and is sent to six northern states and plays an important role in the stability of the country’s gas network.
Thousands of specialists are working day and night in the Kanjiran field and the Shahid Hashimi-Najad filter so that the gas coming out of this field does not stop even for a second.
Currently, total gas production from the Kanjiran Field and the Shurijeh Grounds (UGS) is about 60 million cubic meters per day.
