Overview

Iran’s Pars Oil & Gas Company is exploring and developing the offshore South Pars field, which borders with Qatar’s North Dome gas field in the Gulf, about 100km from the country’s southern coastline.

The South Pars/North Dome gas field is 9,700 km squared in size. South Pars sits within Iran’s territorial waters and the field is 3,700 sq km in size, with proven gas reserves of 350 trillion cubic metres, which is 6 per cent of the world total and half of Iran’s total reserves.

Gas output from phase 12 will be used mainly as feed in National Iranian Oil Company’s LNG plant. Some of the output will also be pumped into the domestic gas network for use in petrochemical projects and for reinjection in order to replenish the oil fields. The output from the gas processing unit will be injected into Iran’s national gas grid.

Work for the gas processing facilities plant:

  • Six gas processing trains including gas sweetening, gas dehydration, gas dew-pointing and gas mercaptans removal
  • Export gas compression
  • Sulphur recovery and tail gas treatment
  • Sulphur granulation and transit storage
  • Propane refrigerant storage
  • Relevant technical and non-technical buildings
  • Relevant roads and paving
