National Gas Grid

The National Gas Grid

The largest and longest in Africa and the Middle East, the National Gas Grid is the source of our pride and our precious property as it provides the vital link in the value chain between gas producers to consumers keeping gas flowing to the different sectors making it available ,accessible ,and affordable. The grid has reached the furthest point of the south valley in Aswan and is extending east to Sinai and along the coast of the Red Sea, north to Lebanon and Syria with potential to reach further. Because the demand for gas is getting higher, the supply imperative, the expansion inevitable, we are developing and delivering solutions while maintaining full flexibility of the grid to meet this rising demand for energy. The grid comprises the following components:

The National Gas Grid

GAS PIPELINES: PIPELINES, LIFE

Aware that piping gas is the best way of delivering gas to our consumers, we are very keen that the grid reaches its peak transmission capacity to cater for present and future demand applying mechanisms to avoid potential weak links in the grid. Our transmission capacity which has reached 240 million standard cubic meters per day by the end of year 2018 compared to 37 MMSCMD in 1997. This is due to increasing the length of the grid to 7620 Km of trunking lines against 2800 in 1997.

REDUCING ,METERING & FILTERING STATION

Till the end of 2018 GASCO has 146 reducing, metering and filtering stations.

GAS CONSUMERS

GASCO delivers Gas to 535 consumers of different sectors with specific pressures.

Sectionalizing Valves

National Gas Grid is protected by a large number of valve rooms (about 553) for securing network crossings of Nile, canal and railways crossing for the protection of long distance lines of the national grid.

Gas Distribution Centers

They are chosen geographically all over areas of the network (Amereya, Abu Qir, Talkha, Shabsheer, Suez, Dahshour, Mahmoudia, El-Tina West, Abu Sultan and Sharkaweya) to provide the best operational services.
