The Transmission Network

The Israel Natural Gas Lines Network includes four major components:

  1. Receiving terminals, where the suppliers deliver the natural gas
  2. Land-based and deep-sea pipelines
  3. Pressure Reduction and Metering Systems (PRMS)
  4. Block valve stations

The following data demonstrate the complexity and the range of the network:
