Speaking on Saturday, the official called on all the
petrochemical industrialists to visit the upcoming Iran Plast exhibition later
in Tehran in September, saying the showcase would display the latest developments
in the petrochemical industry.
“We are currently going through the second leap in the
industry by which petrochemical production capacity would cross 100 million
tons per year,” he said. Iran is currently supplying 66 mt/y of petrochemicals.
By the third production leap, petrochemical production
capacity will reach 140 mt/y, the official added.
He further said that massive amount of feedstock would
be supplied to feed the leaps from the South Pars gas field and new NGP plants
in the country.
