Iran Starts LPG Export in Bandar Abbas

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Exploiting the marine export plan of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has prevented the annual waste of 2,000 tons of LPG that was burned in the past, and in addition, it will bring the country up to $360 million dollars of income annually.

The marine LPG export plan was launched on Wednesday, August 24 at the same time as the start of the government week, in the presence of Jalil Salari, Deputy Minister of Petroleum and the CEO of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), Ali Akbar Nejad Ali, CEO of the National Oil Products Distribution Company, Mehdi Doosti, Governor of Hormozgan and a group of managers and the local officials.

The duration of this project from idea to implementation was only two months and without the minimum budget and with 43,000 man-hours of jihadi work, the disused facility of Bandar Abbas has turned from a storage center to a source of marine export of LPG.

Hormozgan province has become one of the country's energy hubs, and in parallel, this province will be one of the country's export hubs. This project, which was launched with the aim of strengthening the position of Hormozgan as an energy production and export hub, and next to the Shahid Mahdavi oil depot, which will be put into operation in the future in this region with a capacity of 600 million tons, is one of the projects that will ensure energy security in the Hormozgan region.
