TEHRAN (Iran News) –The CEO of Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) said the daily gas production from the South Pars joint gas field has reached 700 million cubic meters.
According to Pars Oil and Gas Company, Mohammad Hossein Motejali said the company raised its gas production from the massive gas field due to the cold snap in the country and the increase in gas consumption in the country.
He listed the priorities of Pars Oil and Gas Company in two sectors, development and operation, and referring to the important role of this company in managing the country’s gas production and consumption balance in the cold months of the year, said: “Implementation of the production maintenance plan from the South Pars gas field is one of the most important priorities of this company.”
The CEO of Pars Oil and Gas Company stated that in addition to the gas pressure boosting projects from this field, the development of other fields such as North Pars, Bilal, Farzad and Phase 11 of South Pars are on the agenda as well.
Meanwhile Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) is planning to invest $2 million in a project for laboratory modeling of corrosion together with a knowledge-based company.
Abbasali Porteghali, POGC’s head of research and technology and thinking center, said: “For the development of infrastructure and laboratory modeling of the corrosion of this field, a project has been defined with more than $2 million investment with a knowledge-based company.”
Addressing a specialized panel entitled “Introduction of technological needs and challenges” at the first conference and exhibition of management of knowledge-based products in Iran’s oil industry, Mr. Porteghali said aligning the plans and executive policies of POGC with the capabilities of domestic knowledge-based companies, purchasing domestically produced items and supporting the localization of goods and engineering services, and updating the domestic procedures and regulations of the company are among the most important actions of POGC for supporting the economy of domestic knowledge-based companies.
He considered the most critical need of Pars Oil and Gas Company in the field of knowledge and technology to maintain the health of the company’s sea pipelines, and said: “There are currently more than 3,000 kilometers of 32-inch pipelines and 3,000 kilometers of 4-inch pipelines under the management of this company. Every year, more than 100 kilometers of these pipelines need major repairs, currently, the repair and replacement of each kilometer of marine pipelines cost a lot for the company.”
Pointing to the 30-month implementation period of this project, Porteghali continued: “With the cooperation and assistance of the National Iranian Oil Company, this project will begin by 2024.”
