The Canada-built PMP radio surveillance system of Agar and Dalan operational region have been localized, saving the country Rls. 1 billion.
According to public relations of the Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC), Mostafa Palizian, head of the Agar and Dalan operational region, said until recently, telephone centers of collection, separation and gas stations and some security posts in this site had been established through Canadian PMP microwave radios, but due to sanctions, this system was removed from the support cycle by its manufacturer and its parts could not be supplied.
He added monopolized technology, the lack of vital spare parts and the importance of constant telephone communication with operational centers, prompted ICOFC experts to solve this problem by resorting to reverse engineering.
Aghar & Dalan Operational Region includes two gas fields. It is located in Fars province and is considered as one of the largest gas fields of the country with 14 billion cubic meters of gas output processed in Farashband refinery for injection to the cross-country gas pipeline as well as to the oil fields of the National Iranian South Oil Company.
