The 8th processing plant of Iran’s South Pars Gas Company (SPGC) has been overhauled, Director of 8th plant Hadi Chabuk said Trend reports citing the company’s official website.

The work carried out the plant included: inspecting the operation of 100 pieces of equipment, replacing, repairing and calibration 450 industrial valves, and replacing and upgrading 44-inch pipelines in the sulfur section.
The 8th processing plant of the South Pars Gas Company processes gas and gas condensate transported from phases 20 and 21 of the South Pars gas field. The plant produces 50 million cubic meters of sweet gas, 75,000 barrels of gas condensate, 400 tons of sulfur, 1.05 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LPG) and 1 million tons of ethane per day.
The South Pars gas field is a joint gas field of Iran and Qatar. The proven reserves of the South Pars Gas Field are estimated at 51 trillion cubic meters of gas, of which 36 trillion are extractable.
At present, Iran's daily gas production from the South Pars gas field is more than 700 million cubic meters. Iran has so far spent $33 billion on projects of the South Pars gas field.
Around 75 percent of Iran's gas is supplied by this field.
Gas from Iran's South Pars gas field is transported to refineries in the Pars Special Energy Economic Zone in the port city of Asaluyeh in Iran's southern Bushehr province via a gas pipeline.
