TEHRAN -- The first jacket for Iran’s South Pars phase 17 project sailed out of the Qaem shipyard in Khoramshahr last week.

According to the country’s Petroenergy Information Network (Shana), the 78-m (256-ft) tall, 800-ton (726-ton) structure was loaded onto the Abouzar cargo ship and was due to arrive at its offshore location last Friday.

Installation should take around one month, with the cargo vessel then heading to Bandar Abbas to pick up the completed South Pars phase 16 jacket.

The offshore production site, Shana adds, will be 105 km (65 mi) from Assaluyeh beach. The development program will involve drilling 44 wells and installing two 32-in. (81-cm) subsea export pipelines and two 4.5-in (11.4-cm) glycol lines.
