SHANA – A senior Iranian official has said that eight development phases of South Pars gas field became operational under President Hassan Rouhani because of his administration’s foresight and devotion.
He asked how come development of Phases 17 and 18 did not finish eight years after it had started in 2005. “Why did the Phases 17&18 progress remain at 50% up to 2011?” he asked.
He also said that two new platforms would be installed in Phase 14 of South Pars and 1 bcf of gas produced at this phase would be carried onshore.
He said Iran and Qatar, which jointly operate South Pars, hold talks from time to time in order to coordinate maximum efficient recovery from the giant reservoir. “But they are not entitled to meddle with each other’s process of field development,” he added.
