Posted on: November 01, 2011


A delegation that included the Chief Executive of Gas Group, the Senior Technical Advisor, Personal Assistant to Chief Executive, Liaison Manager and a Turkish Electric Engineer had visited Mazar-e-Sharif storage facility on Saturday.

During the visit a meeting was held with the construction contractor for the Mazar-e-Sharif     storage building and it was agreed that the construction work must be completed by the start of the holy month of Ramazan. On the other hand, a team of 5 Turkish engineers will arrive in Mazar-e-Sharif on next Saturday to start working on technical portion of Mazar-e-Sharif storage, so hopefully we will be able to start our services in Mazar-e-Sharif before Eidul Fitr which is in mid October.

 In the second part of the visit, the delegation went to the Hairatan storage facilities, which was recently purchased. The storage had built with the modern automatic technology and it has a capacity of 350 metric tons. It has the facility of two railway platforms, one the general platform and the other is specified just for our storage, so we have the ability to off load 8 wagons at one time to reduce the wastage of time during off loading the wagons. The Hairatan storage facilities will be used as a stock for the LPG coming form Central Asia. As a result, another LPG stock is added in the border for Gas Group Company which increases our sources inside the country. The delegation returned back to Kabul on Sunday.  


 Gas Group continuous its expansion through out the country.
