Phases 6, 7 and 8 of South Pars Gas Field Development Project were assigned in July 2000 (Tir 1379) by Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) to Petropars Limited within the scheme of a buy-back contract.
Phases 6, 7 and 8 are included among the Eastern-Central phases of South Pars Gas Field. The onshore establishments and facilities of Phases 6, 7 and 8 border the Persian Gulf in Assaluyeh region in an area measuring about 150 hectares, between the refineries of Phase 1 and Phases 4 and 5 of South Pars, in Pars Energy Economic Special Zone. The wells and offshore platforms of Phases 6, 7 and 8 are located almost 105 km away from the Persian Gulf coast.
Development of Phases 6, 7 and 8 of South Pars Gas Field Project was assigned to Petropars with the aim being to extract and transfer 3 billion cubic feet per day of gas out of 30 wells located on 3 wellhead platforms, and subsequent refining of the same gas in the onshore facilities and establishments. Upon expansion of this Project, the production capacity of Phases 6, 7 and 8 was revamped by 30% to be able to process 3.9 billion feet per day of sour gas, out of which 3.29 billion cubic feet of dry sour gas is transferred, through IGAT V National Gas Grid, for injection into Aghajari oil fields.
Development of Phases 6, 7 and 8, as the greatest project in the history of Iran’s oil industry, was completed as scheduled.
The condensates separated in the onshore facilities are exported through the sub-sea pipeline and SBM. Further, upon its sweetening, the LPG produced therein is transferred to Pars jetty for exportation.
