South Pars ready for sustainable supply of gas in winter

The managing director of Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC), which is in charge of developing Iran’s giant South Pars Gas Field, said all the necessary measures have been taken for the preparation of the complex for sustained supply of gas during the winter.

Mohammad Meshkinfam said the field is ready to produce 700 million cubic meters (mcm) of gas during the winter of the current Iranian year (to start December 22), IRNA reported.

“Plans are being seriously pursued in both development and production sectors, and we are fully prepared to produce 700 million cubic meters per day of gas from 37 South Pars offshore platforms,” Meshkinfam said on the sidelines of a visit to the field’s development projects.

He said at the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 21), there were short interruptions in the implementation of the company’s development projects, but with the efforts made by our team, we are compensating for the delays.

According to the official, the first train of the SP Phase 14 Refinery is expected to go operational by December 21.

The overhaul of South Pars gas platforms is carried out in the first half of the current Iranian year due to the reduction in natural gas demand across the country.

South Pars Gas Field, which Iran shares with Qatar in the Persian Gulf, is currently divided into 24 standard phases in the Iranian side and is estimated to contain a significant amount of natural gas, accounting for about eight percent of the world’s reserves with approximately 18 billion barrels of condensate.
