Phase 13 at Iran’s South Pars to get new gas sweetening facility
Tehran, Iran, Sept. 27
The third onshore gas sweetening facility of phase 13 of the giant South Pars Gas Field in the Persian Gulf will come online soon, according to the chief executive officer of Pars Oil and Gas Company.
“The third onshore gas sweetening facility of phase 13 will come online on Saturday,” Mohammad Meshkin-Fam said, Shana news agency reported.
He added that the facility will receive sour gas from phases 6, 7 and 8 and inject sweet gas into the Sixth Iran Gas Trunkline (IGAT-6).
Meshkin-Fam said more gas sweetening facilities will be launched at the country’s giant energy hub in the near future.
South Pars Gas Field is currently producing 570 million cubic meters of sour gas on a daily basis, he noted.
The gas field, whose development has been divided into 28 phases, is located in the Persian Gulf straddling the maritime border between Iran and Qatar.
It covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, of which 3,700 square kilometers belong to Iran.
It is estimated that the Iranian section of the field contains 14 trillion cubic meters of gas and 18 billion barrels of condensate in place.
