SHANA — The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said Bidboland II Gas Refinery Project was a valuable, national project and played a key part in the oil and gas industry of the country.
During visit to the facility, Behzad Mohammadi, who is also deputy petroleum minister in petrochemical affairs, said the mega project was being completed at an acceptable pace and it the refinery would come on-stream by 2020.
The CEO said the project was one of the key projects in Iran’s oil and gas industry which would be fed by four NGL plants which made it different from South Pars refineries which are fed by South Pars gas field.
The refinery is being developed for processing 2 billion cubic feed of natural gas per day.
Once Gachsaran project, in southwestern Iran, comes online, Bidboland will send 1.5 million tons of ethane to the facility, but before that, the ethane will be used as feedstock by the petrochemical plants operating in Mahshahr Petrochemical Zone, also in southwestern Iran.
