The official emphasized compliance with the health, safety, and environment (HSE) measures and health protocols in the overhaul of the company.

Najafi added that the production of gas condensate as a very profitable in the Fajr Jam Gas Refining Company also increased by 30 percent in the period.
Last June, Spokesman of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) Mohammad Asgari announced that the average gas production at Iran’s refineries stood at 674 million cubic meters per day.
"This figure shows a growth of 24 mcm/d as compared to last year's natural gas production which was 650 mcm/d," Asgari said.
The steady increase in Iran’s gas production has provided the domestic petrochemical players with the opportunity to diversify their feedstocks in a bid to tackle the shortages created over past years.
