TEHRAN (NIPNA) – Grounds have been broken for building a 300,000-ton petrochemical project in the southwestern city of Andimeshk.

A ceremony was held in the city in the presence of Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh and a number of parliament members and local officials to start construction of the project.

The plant is regarded as a key piece in completion of the value chain in production of valued added items in the region.

There is an abundance of ethane and ethylene production capacity in the country thanks to completion of several South Pars phases over the past 6 years, which could be consumed by petrochemical plants.

Andimeshk Petrochemical Project will be completed in a matter of 36 months and will be fed by ethylene that is produced at South Pars gas field, the world’s largest natural gas field located in Persian Gulf waters and shared with Qatar.

Ethxylates, glycol ether and ethanol-amine are to be produced at the plant, and the items would be used as feedstock for hygiene items, detergents, and additives in textile, cement, gas sweetening, refining and petrochemical industries.

The facility is to be developed for production of 200,000 tons per year of items in Assaluyeh, southern Iran.
