Natural Gas South conglomerate signed an agreement with Israel Natural Gas Lines (INGL) that will establish a natural gas transmission system to the southern cities of Ashdod, Ahskelon and Kiryat Gat, INGL announced on Sunday. Under the agreement, which aims to strengthen gas supply to the periphery, INGL will establish Pressure Reducing and Metering Stations for these cities with a total connection capacity of about 40,000 cubic meters per hour.

“The transmission system is developing rapidly,” said Energy and Water Minister Uzi Landau, who praised the agreement. “It carries with it a message of natural gas use in all parts of Israel. We are working to implement the use of natural gas in large industry areas, with an emphasis on the periphery.”

Accomplishing this goal would bring about a significant reduction of air pollution and a better quality of life for the residents of Israel, Landau added.
