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 9,700km 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.

Plans for the development of Phases 15 & 16 are now under way, which closely resembles phases 9 and 10. Once complete it will produce 50 million cubic metres a day of treated natural gas supplied to the domestic network, 1 million tonnes a year of LPG for export to India and Oman through the Iran to India and Iran to Oman pipelines, 80,000 (barrels a day) b/d of stabilised condensate, 1 million tonnes a year of ethane (as feedstock for downstream projects) and 800 tonnes a day of sulphur (for export).

This phase is for the offshore facilities and includes:

  • Jackets (2 x 1,200 tonnes)
  • 2 wellhead platforms
  • Subsea pipeline(2 x 32-inch x 105 km)
  • 24 drilling production wells
