TEHRAN -- Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company (IOEC) will start coating the pipes of Foruzan oilfield within the next 20 days, said the project manager on Saturday.

The project will be carried out in the Khorramshahr yard in three months, Soheil Dilfanian sain in a Mehr report.

The pipes and other equipment have been ordered, said the manager, adding the pipes will be transferred to the yard in the near future.
