TEHRAN (Shana) -- The strategies of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) for implementation of Islamabad-West Petrochemical Project were outlined at the opening meeting of the EPCC contract in the presence of the NPC CEO and senior executives of the company.

According to the National Petrochemical Company, Behzad Mohammadi, speaking on Saturday (May 15) at the meeting to start the EPCC contract for the GTPP project of Islamabad-West Petrochemical Plant, said: “Today's meeting is an important one, the employer and the contractor will work together as a management and implementation team and will move in line with the goals of the project; only their plans are different.”

Regarding the features of the project, he said: "The Islamabad-West project is the first project to be built after privatization by the National Petrochemical Company with the technical savvy of the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company (PRTC). It is hoped that the activities will proceed according to the plan and reach the desired results.”

The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company stated that this important and national project will be built for the first time in the country with the aim of producing propylene using available natural gas. “In the past years, several licenses were issued, but due to lack of technical knowledge, implementation stage was never reached, but now this project is being implemented with the local technical knowhow.”

Construction of Islamabad-West Petrochemical Project, as the first project to produce polypropylene from natural gas in the country with an annual production capacity of 120,000 tons of final polypropylene product, began by the order of the First Vice President on February 7th.

This $545-million project will be constructed by the National Petrochemical Company on a 54-hectare land in the Zagros Special Economic Zone with the technical knowhow provided by the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company.

During construction phase, the project will create 4,500 direct and indirect jobs.
