Director of the Control Department at the National Petrochemical Company (NPC), Ali-Mohammad Bosaqzadeh, says following increase in production of the phases of South Pars gas field in the winter season, the ethane feedstock of the petrochemical facilities will increase this year.
Bosaqzadeh said last years, especially in the winter season,
certain petrochemical facilities failed to continue operation due to gas
“This winter we will have no special problem like feedstock
supply shortage, thanks to the initiative of the Ministry of Petroleum,” said
The feedstock supply this year has increase remarkably
compared to that last year and there is no source of concern with regards to supply
of feedstock to petrochemical facilities in different parts of the country, he
He noted that petrochemical facilities are ready to receive
ethane from different phases of South Pars.
Bosaqzadeh regretted that Kavian, Morvarid, Jam and Arya Sasol
as well as other petrochemical facilities failed to continue operation to their
actual capacity in the preceding years and said the facilities last year
attained a good position for feedstock supply and this year they can add to
their production volume.
Concurrent with increase in the volume of feedstock supply
to the petrochemical facilities, their production will increase as well, he
He said several more petrochemical facilities will become
operational this year and the petrochemical production capacity of the country
will hence increase.
