The South Valley Gas Pipeline is a 930-km pipeline from Dahshour in the north to Aswan in the south with a 30"-32" diameter and total investment cost of about 5.7 million pound. The gas pipeline crosses the Nile at three sites. It is, thus, considered the largest gas pipeline in Egypt. The project consists of six phases in addition to Dahshour compression station to keep up with the expected growing demand of gas.
Phase 1: Dahshour – El-Koraimat Gas Pipeline (90 km length, 36" diameter) Phase 2: El-Koraimat – Beni Suef Gas Pipeline (30 km length, 32" diameter) Phase 3: from Beni Suef to Abu – Qorqas city in Menia (150 km length, 32" diameter) Phase 4: from Abu – Qorqas to Assiut (147 km length, 32" diameter) Phase 5: from Assiut to Gerga (121 km length, 32" diameter) Phase 6: from Gerga to Aswan (390 km length, 30" diameter)
The phases of the South Valley Gas Pipeline were completed in November 2009.
