TEHRAN June 18 (Shana)–Completion of the second phase of West Ethylene Pipeline is a priority of National Petrochemical Company (NPC), a deputy head of NPC said.
He said the pipeline is expected to be completed by March 2015 and would then be ready to receive feedstock for transfer to petrochemical plants.
“Completion of this pipeline at the same time as the operation of new phases of South Pars [gas field] will feed new plants, and the result will be diversity in the production of petrochemical plants in the west of the country,” said Peyvandi.
