TEHRAN (FNA)- The third gas sweetening train of South Pars’ phase 19 refinery is ready for startup after several tests and pre-startup procedures.
Operator to phase 10 development project Hamid Reza Masoudi said 12.5 mcm/d of sour gas will be injected to the refinery for sweetening in the next 5 years.
Inauguration of the train brings the refinery’s gas sweetening capacity to 40 mcm/d which is tantamount to the gas produced by 1.5 standard South Pars phases.
He said once platform 19A comes online in November, the gas recovered by the platform will be injected to the refinery for sweetening.
Phase 19 is being developed for production of 2 bcf/d of gas.
