Second unit of Iran's South Pars gas processing plant goes on stream

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Nov. 3 -- The second unit of a gas processing plant for Phases 4 and 5 of the South Pars natural gas expansion project off Iran has become operational.

When both units operate at full capacity, the plant will process 1 bcfd, a rate that will reach 2 bcfd when all four planned processing units go on stream, the Pars Oil and Gas Co. told OPEC News Agency.

South Pars field is an extension into Iranian waters of supergiant North gas field off Qatar. Iran is developing it with international partners in 25 stages, 10 of which so far are active (OGJ, Sept. 20, 2004, p. 24).
