TEHRAN, Iran – More phases of the South Pars development in the Persian Gulf are nearing completion, according to news service Shana.
Seven wells from Phase 21 are expected to be onstream by October, with the gas injected to Iran’s national trunklines by winter.
Six wells from associated Phase 20 should also be in service by October, added project official Alireza Ebadi, and both phases should be fully operational by October 2016.
Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Co. is constructing the platforms for both phases at Khoramashahr Yard, while Pars Oil and Gas Co. has started subsea pipelay operations.
The 105-km (65-mi) long pipelines will deliver sour gas to the refining facilities in Assaluyeh, southern Iran.
Phases 20 and 21 will eventually deliver 50 MMcm/d (1.8 bcf/d) of processed natural gas for domestic consumption, and 75,000 b/d of condensate.
A consortium of Petro Paydar Iranian, SADRA, and MAPNA is developing South Pars Phase 13 under an EPC contract. The platforms are more than 70% complete, said project official Payam Motamed, with platform 13A due to be installed before end-March 2016, with first gas to follow later in the year.
Phase 13 is designed to produce 50 MMcm/d of sweet natural gas and 80,000 b/d of gas condensate.
