TEHRAN – Development of South Pars phase 8 is virtually complete, according to Iran’s Petroenegy Information Network (Shana).

Gholam-Reza Manouchehri, managing director of Petropars, said that output from Phase 8, along with newly increased capacity at phases 6 and 7, will lead to collective production from these phases of 104 MMcm/d and 158,000 b/d of gas-condensate.

A third pipeline for this project was recently laid, and since last Sunday, the installation vessel HLP5000 has been on station performing various module lifts, including two bridge links between platforms.

Eventually, produced gas from these three phases will be transported to the Iranian mainland for injection into the Aqajari oil field.

According to another report by Shana, Oman’s king recently visited Iran to discuss co-operation in various matters, including energy supply. One proposal involves exports of gas from Iran’s Kish field under a $12 billion development, which Oman is said to be willing to fund.

Supplies would head to Oman through a new 2,000-km (1,243-mi) pipeline, much of this subsea. The project could be completed in 2012.
