19th South Pars oil shipment loaded

SHANA — The 19th crude oil consignment recovered from the oil layer of South Pars Gas Field in Persian Gulf waters was loaded at FPSO Cyrus, IOOC said.

According to the Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC), the FPSO began shipment of the consignment on August 14 and ended it the next day.

This is the first consignment of South Pars oil after the FPSO (floating, production, storage and offloading vessel) collided with SOL tanker back on July 14.

Iran began to extract crude oil from South Pars in March 2016 using FPSO Cyrus.
