TEHRAN Nov 30 (Shana)–Bidboland gas refinery is expected to hit 30 mcm/d of gas processing capacity by the end of the current Iranian calendar year which began March 2013, said an official with the plant.
He said construction of two sulfur recovery units (SRU) in the refinery is 70% complete under an engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) project for the production of 120 tons a day of sulfur.
“For the first time in the country, sulfur recovery unit (SRU) has been designed by domestic knowledge and without dependence on foreign license,” Saeed Pakseresht said.
He said the sulfur fed into Bidboland refinery is to rise and therefore a sulfur recovery unit would be a must.
Bidboland gas refinery is predicted to process 8 bcm of gas this calendar year to March 2015, up from last year’s 7.8 bcm, the refinery’s manager said recently.
He said Masjed Soleyman gas refinery, run by Bidboland, processed 80 mcm of gas during the first eight months of the current calendar year.
