With the completion of construction operations in the maritime and terrestrial sections, and with the launching of processing and desalination sections, the 15th and 16th Phases of this national gas project will enter the operation circuit at the threshold of the cold season, the MANA reported from Boushehr.
The development of this project has been operational by a consortium of Iranian companies for the purpose of extracting gas from the reservoirs of Pars-E-Jonoubi Joint Field.
The main goal of planning and implementing this project was to produce 50 million cubic meters of sweet gas daily. This volume of sweet gas is meant to supply the fuel needed in the country, particularly in residential, commercial and industrial sectors. Besides, this development plan is supposed to produce a daily volume of 80 thousand barrels of condensates to supply fuel for refineries. Another goal for this project is to produce valuable products as well as 400 tons of sulfur to be exported to international markets.
An annual production of 1 million and 50 tons of liquid gas (LPG, Propane, and Bhutan) for export as well as the production of 1 million tons of Ethan are also other products of this phase. These produced volumes are meant to feed petrochemical industries, particularly the petrochemical industries located on the route of West Ethylene Pipeline as well as the industries designed for second phase of petrochemical plants in Asalouyeh.
Although the engineering sections of the 15th and 16th Phases, as the most fundamental designing sections of any refinery construction project, have been supervised and managed by Iranian parties, these two phases are the first Pars-E-Jonoubi projects whose entire operational stages – including construction, installation and implementation – have been done under the management of Iranian engineers.
