Phase 13 Refinery starts Gas Injection to National Trunkline

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The onshore processing facilities of South Pars Phase 13 started gas injection to the national gas trunkline on the occasion of the anniversary of nationalization of oil industry in Iran.

According to Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC), Payam Motamed, operator of Phase 13 development project, said the first train of the refinery came online on March 20 by injection of 7 million cubic meters/day of sweetened gas to the national gas trunkline.

He said the refinery was ready for operation in February but its startup was deferred to a month later due to two cold snaps that gripped the country and increased gas consumption in the household sector.

Motamed further added that construction of the offshore platforms of the phase have also made 85% progress and its sea-bed pipelines are 78% complete. Moreover, 86% of the drilling work in the project have been completed.

South Pars Phase 13 is being developed by a consortium of PetroPayadar, MAPNA and Sadra companies for production of 56 million cubic meters per day of sour gas, 50 million cubic meters/day of sweet gas, 2,900 tons/day of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), 2,750 tons/day of ethane, 75,000 barrels/day of gas condensate and 400 tons/day of sulfur.
