Phase 19 Gas Recovery at 2bcf by March 2017

TEHRAN, May 29 (Shana) – Iran has envisaged plans to extract at least 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas from phase 19 of the supergiant South Pars joint gas field in Persian Gulf waters.

A senior official at the Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company (IOEC) said topsides 19A and 19B belonging to the phase will be loaded during summer this year for installation at their designated spot to bring production from the phase to over 2 bcf.

Rahim Tabrizi said construction of the two topsides is nearly complete.

After loading, the topsides will take nearly four months for installation and launching, he said.

Tabrizi further said phase 19 will be fully operational by the end of the current calendar year to March 20 2017. 

The gas recovered from the phase is injected in the national gas distribution network, he added. 

Phase 19 development of South Pars is set to produce 50 mcm/d of sweet gas, 75,000 b/d of gas condensate, 400 tons a day of sulfur, 1.05 million tons a year of liquefied petroleum gas and one million tons a year of ethane.

This development phase was awarded by Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) to a Petropars-led consortium of Petropars Limited and Petropars Iran and Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company (IOEC) in June 2010 under an engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) contract.

Petropars Limited and Petropars Iran are responsible for onshore installations and drilling operations.
