Iran’s Pars Oil & Gas Co. (POGC) reported that construction on Phases 15 and 16 at its third gas processing plant serving South Pars gas field has reach 95% completion. The plant will come online in August, POGC said.

The three-plant complex processes sour gas from Phases 6, 7, and 8 of the gas field. The first and second plants of Phases 15 and 16 are to process 25 million cu m/day of sour gas while the third plant is undergoing precommissioning.

POGC said the three gas processing plants will process at least 40 million cu m/d of gas in winter.

Development of South Pars gas field Phases 15 and 16 aims at producing 56.6 million cu m/day of gas, 75,000 b/d of condensate, and 400 tons/day of sulfur, POGC said. The two phases also will yield 1.05 million tons/day of LPG, propane, and butane as well as 1 million tons/day of ethane mainly for use as petrochemical plant feedstock.

Offshore and onshore installations of the two phases include two drilling platforms (each with 11 wells), two 32-in., and two 71-mile, 4-in. gas pipelines, along with sweetening and related services.
