Iran has domestically developed two technologies, which the West banned to import to the country, Mehr News Agency quoted Head of National Iranian Oil Company's Research Center of Polymer Science and Technology Mansur Bazni as saying on Saturday.

"Western companies refused to provide us with technologies used for deriving liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) due to sanctions. However, we could develop them using our own experience and knowledge," Bazni said

He noted that these technologies are currently used in the South Pars field. "Their application in the South Pars made the LPG derived there from crude oil and gas condensates meet the international standards," Bazni added.

He said the use of the domestically developed technologies is more profitable than its foreign analogues from both a technical and economic point of view.
