Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 22
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Iran's Zagross region, which covers southern provinces of Fars, Hormozgan, and Bushehr, and southwestern provinces of Kohgilouyeh-Boyerahmad, and Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari, produced over 200 million cubic meters of gas in 11 months.
Zagross Oil and Gas Company managing director Ahmad Seraji said the region's gas output increased by 8.2mcm in the first 11 months of the current Iranian fiscal year, which started on March 21, 2014, Iran's Shana news agency reported on Feb. 22.
The output was 3.8 percent more that the projected volume, he noted.
The Zagross region has four non-associate gas fields, namely Nar-o Kangan, Aghar-o Dalan, Sarkhoun, and Parsian. Its annual output is about 235mcm, equaling 40 percent of the country's total gas production.
Currently Iran produces 350 mcm/d of sour gas, of which 282 mcm/d is sweetened, but Iran is determined to complete all phases of South Pars by 2017 to increase the production level to above one billion cubic meters of enriched gas per day.
Iran increased gas output from South Pars by 100 mcm/d in 2014 and its projected the volume be raised again as much as 2014's growth in the current year.
