Operator of phase 19 development project of the supergiant South Pars Gas Field said the phase’s first gas condensate cargo will be exported within the next few weeks.
Hamidreza Masoudi said the phase has so far injected over 100 mcm of gas to the national gas network.
Phase 19 is one of a series of projects dubbed as 35-month projects. The platform 19A of the phase was loaded from Khoramshahr Yard for delivery and installation at its designated spot on Thursday.
Masoudi said that installation of the platform will hopefully take 4 months, and once operational, the platform will add 500 mcf/d of gas to the gas field’s gas output.
What’s more, the installation of platform 19C will be finished in the next few weeks, he said, adding it will add 1 billion cubic feet of gas to the field’s output.
He said the phase will produce 1.5 bcf/d of gas once the two platforms are fully operational.
Phase 19 development of South Pars is set to produce 50 mcm/d of sweet gas, 75,000 b/d of gas condensate, 400 tons a day of sulphur, 1.05m tons a year of liquefied petroleum gas and 1m tons a year of ethane.
This development phase was awarded by Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) to a Petropars-led consortium of Petropars Limited and Petropars Iran and Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company (IOEC) in June 2010 under an engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) contract.
Petropars Limited and Petropars Iran are responsible for onshore installations and drilling operations.
