The 5th refinery facilities of South Pars gas field registered a 55.9 mcm/d record in processing natural gas during the previous Iranian calendar year which ended on March 19, said the plant's director.
Speaking with Shana, Iraj Khoramdel said the refinery also dramatically reduced its gas flaring during the year while improving reliability of its machinery in production to 98.89%.
He said the reduction in gas flaring by the refinery is a major step in preservation of the environment as the plant views this part of its activities as high priority.
“By precise planning, we were able to reduce the volume of the refinery’s flared gas from 1.26 mcm/d to 0.18 mcm/d during the previous year,” he added.
The refinery also processed 1.9 mcm of ethane, 2,323.4 tons of propane, 1,265 tons of butane, 88,500 tons of gas condensate and 160 tons of sulfur on a daily basis.
