Phases 20 and 21 of Iran’s enormous South Pars Field are approaching 90 per cent development, according to a senior Iranian official.
“These phases have had 90 per cent development,” director of Phases 20 and 21 of South Pars, Hamid Reza Mahdavi, told the Iranian press.
Engineers have recently competed the digging of 11 wells in phase 21, and are hopeful that they will be up and running in the near future.
Mahdavi also confirmed that the refineries in both phases were ready to begin processing gas.
'The refineries of phases 20 and 21 comprise four rows of gas sweetening and its first row is presently ready to receive gas.'
The development of phases 20 and 21 will target the production of 50 million cubic metres of sweetened natural gas as well as one million tonnes of ethane gas for use in the country’s petrochemical sector. In addition to this, phases 21 and 21 are expected to produce an additional 75,000 barrels of condensate per day.
