Four new phases of South Pars ready to be launched
Bushehr, Four new phases of the 13, 22, 23 and 24 South Pars will be officially commissioned on Sunday in a ceremony at the presence of President Hassan Rouhani.
The development plan for phases 13, 22 to 24 of South Pars enjoys a daily production capacity of 113 million cubic meters of gas, 100 million cubic meters of methane, 150,000 barrels of gas condensate, 800 tons of granular sulfur, 2.1 million tons of liquid gas per year, and two million tons of ethane as the main feed for petrochemical industries.
In the current situation, Iran's total gas production capacity from the South Pars gas field is 600 million cubic meters a day, which, with the commissioning of these four new phases, the capacity will exceed 700 million cubic meters per day.
According to the report, the daily production capacity of sweet gas in the South Pars region is about 570 million cubic meters, which, with the exploitation of these new phases, will reach about 670 million cubic meters per day, while the gas condensate production capacity from the current 810 barrels will reach 960 million cubic meters per day.
One of the most important productions of new phases of the South Pars is ethane gas, which serves as a feed for olefin complexes and ultimately produces various polymeric materials including light, heavy, linear, propylene, etc., which with utilizing new phases this capacity rises from 6 to about 8 million tons annually.
