Maximum transmission capacity of the gas pipeline network

 

Compressor stations ensure that natural gas maintains sufficient pressure while flowing through the pipelines.

At Enagás we currently have 19 compressor stations with a total installed capacity of 519,988 kW ISO. The maximum pressure of the gas in compressor stations is between 80 and 72 bar, depending on the design pressure of the pipeline in which they are located. The minimum pressure lies between 40 and 45 bar.
