TEHRAN (NIPNA) – An official with the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said the damage caused by recent flash floods to the West Ethylene Pipeline had been contained.

Speaking to NIPNA, the director of production control at NPC said the damage was caused by rainfall and flooding but was now under control.

The unprecedented rainfall and flooding in recent days submerged many villages in the country, especially in the western province of Lorestan and a part of the city of Pole-dokhtar, and damaged the pipeline which carried feedstock to dozens of petrochemical plants in western Iran, said Ghodratollah Farjpour.

"Fortunately, with regard to the existing safety systems, the leak was contained immediately,” he said.

The official further added that once water flow decreases around leakage, expert teams were dispatched to the area to fix it as soon as possible.
