Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 26/ Trend M. Moezzi/
Iran has increased the processing capacity of a processing plant at the South Pars Gas Complex (SPGC) by 6 million cubic meters per day, Shana News Agency quotes the managing director of the National Iranian Gas Co. (NIGC) as saying.
This is part of an overall plan to focus on using processing plant's maximum capacity, the NIGC's managing director Javad Oji said.
The plan to increase the fifth processing plant's capacity at the South Pars Gas Complex was defined in the first half of this year (the Iranian solar year ends in March). After preliminary studies and performance tests the project was implemented in November, adding 6 million cubic meters of production capacity to the fifth processing plant.
Tests show that the SPGC's fifth processing plant can produce 100 percent more gas while following quality standards, Mr. Oji said. The production of sweet gas at the SPGC has increased from 51 million cubic meters per day to 57 million cubic meters per day.
