President RB Murtaza Rakhimov and President of JSC “GASPROM” Alexei Miller visited the gas-distribution station N4 in the city of Salavat today within the frames of Alexei Miller’s business visit to Republic of Bashkortostan.

The station was launched in 2002 in order to supply the enterprises of the Republican oil-chemical and machine-building complex, located in Salavat, with gas. The station was erected instead of the obsolete gas-distribution station N3, found in exploitation since 1967.

The station is constructed according to the individual project. Its summary output capacity makes 18 million cubic meter of gas daily. The gas is distributed in five directions: To Salavat’s heat station, to JSC “SALAVATNEFTEORGSINTEZ” as a fuel, to the same plant for technological processes, to the local plant of fertilizers and to New-Salavat heat station.

At present time Bashkortostan achieves the program for reconstruction of existing gas-distribution stations, meant for 2005-2010. Within the frames of the program 10 gas-distribution stations have already been reconstructed. Other 110 stations have been capitally repaired. The gas-distribution station N4 is considered the third station in Bashkortostan by productivity.
