Raeisi to inaugurate SP Phase 11 gas project shortly

SHANA (Assaluyeh) – Iran’s President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi arrived in Assaluyeh, southern province of Bushehr, on Monday to officially inaugurate the project of Phase 11 of the South Pars (SP) gas field.

The president will also meet a number of oil officials during his visit.

Phase 11 is the farthest border section of South Pars gas field Iran shares with Qatar in the Persian Gulf.

On Sunday, the National Iranian Oil Company managing director said the Phase 11 development project was implemented by NIOC under the 13th (incumbent) administration after a 20-year hiatus.

Mohsen Khojastehmehr added 24 wells will be drilled and 56 million cubic meters of gas and one million tons of ethane per day as well as one million tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per annum will be produced when the Phase 11 project is fully implemented, predicting that its production will fetch the country $5 billion annually.

Phase 11 is the last phase of the South Pars field, whose development is in progress, mentioned the official.
