Project Description

In 2006, Navrood was awarded a contract to construct a 48 km cross-country 30” gas pipeline, from south to north of Orumiye.
The line started at the end of Miyandoab – Orumiye 30” gas pipeline, and was connected to the existing line via hot tapping procedure, and consequently ended in the vicinity of the first gas reduction station in Orumiye, Despite the fact that the pipeline passed through rugged mountainous terrain, valleys, and under some rivers (collectively over 1 km), by implementing a rigorous safety plan and quality control procedure, Navrood managed to deliver the project safe, and in accordance with the highest technical standards. As such, the project was recognized as the superior HSE project by the Iranian National Gas Company and earned Navrood several recognitions and awards.
