Phase 12 daily gas recovery at 51mcm

TEHRAN Jan 24(Shana)–Operator of Phase 12 of the supergiant offshore South Pars gas field said 51mcm/d of sour gas is being recovered from the phase, saying plans are under way to increase the production level.
Rasoul Fallah said the plans include pigging of a marine pipeline which will add to the phase’s sour gas output. 

He said over 60 mcm of gas is being processed at Phase 12 refinery, adding that currently the refinery receives less than 10mcm/d of sour and dry gas from Iran Gas Trunkline 5 and injects it to the national trunkline after sweetening the content.

Fallah further added that the 7th consignment of 2 million barrels of gas condensate from the gas field was delivered to a foreign destination last week. 

More than 2.2 billion cubic feet of sour gas is recovered by platforms A, B and C of the South Pars which will reach 3 billion feet by the time the last train of Phase 12 comes online.

Phase 12 is the main development phase of South Pars which Iran and Qatar share in the Persian Gulf. 

South Pars covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, 3,700 square kilometers of which are in Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. The remaining 6,000 square kilometers are situated in Qatar’s territorial waters.

The gas field is estimated to contain a significant amount of natural gas, accounting for about eight percent of the world’s reserves, and approximately 18 billion barrels of condensate.
