Marzieh Shahdaei said: "By obtaining a license from the
National Petrochemical Company for the third leap, we seek to complete the
value chain of methanolic units and produce polyolefins, polypropylene and
implement GTPP projects in Chabahar, Parsian and Mako regions."
She told a press conference: “Petrofarhang Holding is the
largest holding in terms of capital value in Farhangian Reserve Fund and in
addition to its presence in the petrochemical industry, it also operates in
other sectors such as power plants and capital. 1.2 to 5 percent of educators'
contributions to the fund until they retire will bring them a good value added at
the end of their service.”
She said that this holding has 4 methanol units under way:
"Kimia Middle East Petrochemical Plant entered the production circuit last
year and is now operating and exporting items with a capacity of 60%, and last
week Sabalan Petrochemical Plant developed by Sepehr Energy Group with the
partnership of the Bank Saderat was officially put into operation and two
projects, Dena and Siraf, will be added to the country's methanol producers
within the next 2 years.”
Shahdaei added: "Once Dena and Siraf projects come
online, Petrofarhang will have a total of 6.6 million tons per year of methanol
production capacity in Iran which make it the largest methanol producing
holding company in the world."
She continued: "The physical progress of Dena project
has reached 68% and we are seriously looking to complete our development
Petrofarhang Holding CEO stated the current capacity of
methanol production in the country is 14 million tons per year, which, by 2024,
will exceed 20 million tons, which means 13% of world methanol production will
be in the hands of Iran and 4% of it will be supplied by the methanol complexes
financed by Petrofarhang Holding.
