7 Gathering Associated Gases Projects Coming Online

SHANA (Tehran) - 7 gathering associated gases projects, worth 400 million dollars, will be completed over the first half of the current Iranian calendar year, which ends on March 20, 2025.

Speaking with Shana, the Managing director of the Persian Gulf Bidboland Gas Refinery, Mahmoud Aminnejad, made the remarks adding that by launching the projects 16 gas flares will be turned off in the East Karoon region and as much as 250 million cubic feet of gas will be collected for use as feedstock.  

The 7 projects are part of a general plan named "Renovation and Construction of Gas Collection Facilities" which the Petroleum Ministry is pursuing its implementation seriously.

The contract for the renovation and construction of gas collection facilities in the East Karoon region, worth 1.109 billion dollars, was signed in 2018 between Persian Gulf Holding and the National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC).

The Persian Gulf Bidboland Gas Refinery, which is in charge of implementing the contract, plans to collect the associated gases, preventing the burning of national wealth, preserving the environment, and providing the collected gases as feedstock.    

Aminnejad told Shana that Bidboland Gas Refinery had became operational in February 2021 as the largest processing associated gas installation but its sustainable operation depends on the implementation of the renovation and construction of gathering associated gas installation projects.  

Over the first half of this year, 7 out of 27 projects of this plan worth about 400 million dollars will be completed and ready for operation, he said.

By launching these projects, 16 gas flares will be turned off and 250 million cubics of gas will be added to the available feedstock capacity of Bidboland gas refinery in the second half of this year, he said, adding an increase in feed, will result in producing more products and as a result, more methane will be injected to the national gas network and at the same time higher ethane will be available for feeding the petrochemical complexes.
