    Iran Gas Sector Braces for Fast Development

    TEHRAN (Shana) -- Iran’s gas industry development has over the past six years seen daily growing development with the focus having been on recovery from the giant South Pars gas field. Development of gas industry is racing ahead in both upstream and downstream sectors. Iran’s gas industry train has been overcoming all restrictions in order to reach the final destination, which is maximum recovery from joint fields and replacement of gas with petroleum products. The gas industry hopes to connect all cities, as well as all villages with more than 20 households to the national gas network. In addition to maximum recovery from joint gas fields, processing the already recovered gas would be also instrumental in order to avoid any halt in the development operations.

    Inauguration in Rapid Succession

    Last calendar year saw Iran's oil refining industry take important steps towards development and self-sufficiency. The refining industry has signed memorandums with the Petroleum Ministry and some other ministries and bodies. One of these MOUs was on producing needle and sponge coke at the Bandar Abbas and Imam Khomeini oil refineries. They were signed between National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) and Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO) with a view to putting an end to Iran's sponge coke imports. Another achievement of the oil refining industry is full commissioning of phases 1, 2 and 3 of the Bandar Abbas gas condensate refinery, generally known as the Persian Gulf Star refinery. Some 70% of the equipment used at the condensate refinery was made in Iran.
