President Raeisi inaugurates Phase 11 of South Pars gas field

SHANA (Assaluyeh) – Iran’s President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi inaugurated Phase 11 of the South Pars (SP) gas field in the Persian Gulf on Monday.

Upon his arrival in Assaluyeh, southern province of Bushehr, the president paid a visit to the platform of SP Phase 11 and talked to industrious engineers and workers.

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

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.
