Iran ends Gas Odorant Monopoly of Foreigners

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The CEO of the Iranian Gas Engineering and Development Company (IGEDC) announced the end of the monopoly of foreign countries in the production of gas odorant.

Reza Noshadi stated that Iran, relying on the knowledge of its talented specialists, ended the monopoly of foreign countries in the production of odorant and joined the club of technology owners of the production of this strategic item.

“By increasing the production capacity of natural gas flavoring agent, in addition to meeting the domestic needs, the possibility of exporting and earning hard currency has been provided for the country,” he said during a visit to the South Pars gas complex projects.

In this visit, Ebrahim Esalati, the director of the refining projects of IGEDC, also explained the necessity of the project to build a odorizer production unit, and stated: “Odorant is the odorizer of natural gas and an indicator for detecting gas leaks in the gas outlet path at pressure reduction stations.”

He continued: “Until 2018, this item was purchased through imports, and due to the tightening of sanctions and the increase in the exchange rate, the country would have been faced with enormous problems had the item’s production not been localized.”
