TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The CEO of the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC) said construction of Andimeshk Petrochemical Project would complete the value-chain in PGPIC.

The plant would pave the way for construction of downstream projects, while generating jobs, said Jafar Rabiei.

He said construction of the plant would begin within the next few days, adding, “Over the past 6 years and completion of several South Pars phases, there is an abundance of ethane and ethylene production capacity in the country 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, he said, adding 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.
