Offshore staff

TEHRAN, Iran – Offshore installation of the second South Pars Phase 19 sour gas 32-in. pipeline is complete in the Persian Gulf. This will take gas from the Phase 19 platforms to an onshore processing terminal in Iran.

Work on the first sour gas transfer 32-in. line and associated glycol 4-in. line was completed this past October. In total, 231 km (143 mi) of pipelines were laid.

As for the ongoing South Pars 17 and 18 projects, drilling of the first seven wells is complete at the A18 platform.

According to Hassan Boyeri, director for development of both phases, the first part of offshore drilling operations in this project was completed successfully after conducting final tests. The seven drilled wells have a gas production capacity of 15 MMcm/d (550 MMcf/d).

He added that a new schedule has been agreed for these two phases to achieve early development of the offshore facilities.
