Rouhani Launches Centralized Storage Tanks in South Pars

TEHRAN (Shana) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani officially ordered commissioning of the centralized storage tanks of South Pars worth €29.2 million and Rls.2,200 billion via video conference.

The project of constructing storage facilities and gas condensate measuring stations, which was put into operation today (Thursday, November 26) by the order of President Hassan Rouhani via video conference, is aimed at storing gas condensate from a number of South Pars refineries with a nominal capacity of 640,000 cubic meters, an equivalent of 4 million barrels.

In the project, which was ordered by Pars Oil and Gas Company, eight tanks each with a capacity of 80,000 cubic meters (500,000 barrels) and a total capacity of 640,000 cubic meters with a floating roof and two fire tanks and fuel tanks, piping network and systems, electrical, instrumentation and measuring systems and condensate transfer boosters and the related pumps, as well as industrial and administrative buildings were constructed.

These tanks have the capacity to supply 480,000 barrels of gas condensate per day to the Persian Gulf Star Refinery through the pumping stations of the refinery on the west side of the facility and also send gas condensate to the single point mooring (SPM) No. 1 and 2 through 30-inch inlet-outlet pipelines at up to 600,000 barrels per day.

Construction project of storage facilities and gas condensate measuring stations was carried out under three EPC1, EPC2, EPC3 (engineering, equipment procurement and execution) contracts by the developers and consultants of Nardis Energy Projects, Arak Machinery Company and Pars Consulting Engineers Company, and was funded by the domestic sources from the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and the National Development Fund of Iran (Article 12 of Elimination of Production Barriers Act).

Construction of the project generated 160 direct jobs and its operation needs 50 people on duty.
