Teheran, February 8 - Neftegaz. RU. The new refineries of South Pars gas field will be inaugurated by President Hassan Rouhani during the next 2-3 weeks, Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh announced in a press conference.

 

The refineries belong to phases 13, 22-24 of the gas field that their development has costed $10 billion, the minister said.

 

The 4 mentioned refineries will receive 3 billion cubic feet of gas per day, of which 2 billion cubic feet will be supplied by the offshore platforms of phases 13, 22, 23, and 24 and the rest 1 billion cubic feet will be transferred from phase 14 to these refineries, Zanganeh explained.
