NIOC chief: NGL 3200 plant launch a big step toward collecting associated gases

SHANA (Tehran) – The National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) managing director said on Saturday the first phase of the NGL 3200 project will become operational soon, describing it as a major stride toward collecting associated gases.

Based on plans, Mohsen Khojastehmehr added, 50 percent of associated petroleum gases – 26.4 million cubic meters per day on average – would be gathered this year and the other half would be collected by the mid-March 2026.

The NGL 3200 plant is among the main projects outlined in the plans, the NIOC chief mentioned.

The two-phased large project, he continued, would help collect and process associated gases in West Karoun fields, including Azadegan, Yadavaran, Darkhoein, South and North Yaran, Sohrab, Sepehr, Jofeir, Sousangerd, and Band-e Karkheh, having a capacity of 500 million cubic feet.

Khojastehmehr said NIOC is implementing the project by employing domestic experts and investing 1.4 billion euros with the aim of boosting economic productivity and protecting the environment.

When the plant is put into operation, 70 million cubic feet of light sweet gas and 1,200 tons of gas condensates will be produced daily, announced the NIOC head.
