TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Petroleum Engineering and Development Company (PEDEC) is to provide the necessary pipelines as well as processing and sweetening equipment for the Kish gas field which is expected to produce 120 mcf/d of gas.
Kish gas field, the largest independent gas field in Iran, is under development in three phases for the transfer of gas through subterranean and subsea pipelines, transmission of sour gas to a gas refinery in Gorzeh region as well as processing sour gas in the refinery to produce low-density gas for exports or domestic consumption.
Under an early production plan for this field, nearly 120 mcf/d of gas is expected to be extracted from Cluster B of Kish Island.
PEDEC will need between 12 and 15 months for designing, procurement of commodities and implementation of the project.
Saeed Rajabzadeh, director for Kish gas field development in PEDEC, said the gas required to feed a power plant in the Kish island will be supplied by two wells in the Kish gas field.
“One well will produce enough gas for the power plant and the other well will be on standby. In case of halt in the production from the first field or in the event of reparation work, the second one will keep supplying gas,” he said.
The activities under way for early production from Kish include environmental studies, studying the seabed, gathering drilling data, choosing the appropriate drilling rig and its installation.
Kish gas field is under development under an EPFC contract.
