Iran Produces over 74 mln Tons of Petrochemicals in One Year
An official at the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said 74.3 million tons of petrochemical products were produced in the country in the last Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2023 to March 19, 2024).

TEHRAN (Iran News) –Speaking at a specialized meeting on reviewing the strategy of a production jump in the petrochemical industry on the sidelines of the Iran Oil Show 2024, Bijan Chegeni emphasized that the objectives of the production jump should be realized in the petrochemical industry to witness a production hike in downstream industries, exports and currency yielding.

The NPC’s production control manager noted that 74.3 million tons of petrochemicals were produced in the country last year.

Elsewhere in his remarks, he said 20 petrochemical companies get 208 megawatts of electricity from the national electricity grid, stressing that most of these companies have heavily invested on purchasing the gas power plants and supply their need independently, IRNA reported.

The 28th Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition (Iran Oil Show 2024) was inaugurated in a ceremony at the Tehran Permanent International Fairgrounds on Wednesday, May 8, and will run through May 11.
