  North District

The Geographical Features of Mazandaran and Golestan Provinces

Mazandaran, the northern province of Iran, with an area of about 23756 square kilometers is the 18th largest province of the country. Sari is the center of Mazandaran province. There are 15 Counties, 36 Cities, and 38 Districts in this province.

Golestan, with Gorgan city as its Center, lies in an area of about 22,000 square meters.  This province consists of 7 Counties, 16 Cities, 16 Districts, and 45 villages. Golestan province borders Torkamanest.

 

Iranian Oil Pipelines and Telecommunication Company (IOPTC), as one of the subsidiary companies of National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) is tasked with transporting crude oil and refined oil products. To this end, long routes through forests, plains, mountains, valleys and rough terrain as well as extreme climate are conquered only with the power of determination of all the people in IOPTC.

     North District

SHOMAL DISTRICT

 

North District was established in 2006 as the 11th District with the following objectives:

-          Transporting the crude oil, imported from Caspian Sea regional countries, from Neka Terminal to Tehran and Tabriz Refineries (SWAP Project).

-          Moving  and delivering  refined oil products  (imported or from Tehran Refinery) to distribution Facilities in the Centre of Mazandaran and Golestan Provinces,

-          Providing telecommunication throughout pump stations, pressure reducing stations, installations, and companies and offices of the Oil Ministry.

 

The North Aare has its center in Sari, where Technical Units and Staff are stationed.

 

 

The Operation in North District consists of transporting crude oil and oil products via 5 pump stations, 3 pressure-reducing stations, 3 terminals, through 8", 10", 12", 16", 30", and 32" pipelines, with the total length of about 609km. There are 22 Cathodic Protection Stations in place to protect the pipelines.

 

Refined Oil Products Transportation Operation

Oil products from Tehran Refinery are carried to Sari distribution facility. The task is done through 12", and 16" Ray- Sari pipelines laid on mountainous and forest routes via Veresk Pressure Reducing Station, Margov Pump station, Lajim  Pressure Reducing Station and finally  Sari Terminal with the capacity of transporting 50,000 b/d ( about 8 million liters ). Part of Mazandaran Province required oil products are supplied from imports which are delivered through 8" Neka- Sari pipeline with the capacity of moving 35,000 b/d. The fuel for Golestan Province is transported via 10" Shahrood –Ali Abad, 8" Ali Abad- Gorgan, and Ali Abad- Gonbad pipelines, with the capacity of 41,000 b/d.

 

 

 

 

 

Operational zone

Operational zone of the North District starts from Neka Pump Station in Mazandaran Province and ends in Moghanak Pressure Reducing Station in Damavand County (in Tehran Province). It also covers Ali Abad, Gorgan, and Gonbad Counties in Golestan Province.

 

North District Telecommunication      

Deputy of North District Telecommunication is responsible of providing communication services for pump stations, installations and pressure reducing stations in the area.

The task is carried out by maintaining 11 telecommunication stations, 6 ground satellite stations(Vsat), and 12 internal telephone centers(key system) and fx lines. The telecommunication activities include, but not limited to, NGSDH project, IP switch project, Ericson IP Telephone center operation in the area, running CMMS system, installing MB2x2 radio link. Furthermore, Deputy of North District Telecommunication renders services to Sari and Golestan Distribution facilities as well as Gas co. and Tavanir Co.
