Speaking to NIPNA, Ali Mohammad Bossaqzadeh, the director of
projects at NPC, said the company viewed completion of the value-chain in the
area as a strategy to ensure the balanced development of the industry in
Assaluyeh, one of the two main petrochemical hubs in Iran along Mahshahr in the
southwestern province of Khuzestan.
“We are seriously pursuing completion of the value-chain and
petrochemical development in Assaluyeh,” he said.
The official also stated that NPC expected a production enhancement
in the area by 2021 as new phases of South Pars gas field would become
operational providing more feedstock to petrochemical facilities.
