MASTER GAS SYSTEMS EXPANSION

MASTER GAS SYSTEMS EXPANSION

The Master Gas System (MGS) is operated by Aramco and is one of the world’s largest hydrocarbon networks. Construction started on the scheme in the mid-1970s as a means to transfer gas across the kingdom to support industrialization. The system became fully operational in 1982 and allows Aramco to market all of its gas domestically.

The MGSE is being implemented to meet increased gas demand from the kingdom’s Central and Western Regions. When the scheme has been completed, it will be able to provide 9.6 billion cubic feet a day (cf/d) of gas by end-2016 using the booster gas compressor stations and pumping stations and 12.5 billion cubic feet a day (cf/d) by end-2018.
