TEHRAN -- Development of the Salman oil and gas field in the Persian Gulf is 98% complete, according to a report by Iran’s Petroenergy Information Network, Shana.

Salman Project Manager Ali-Reza Nazari said $1.5 billion was allocated to the development, which will produce through a fixed platform.

Gas will be transferred through a new 32-in. (81-cm) subsea pipeline laid between Siri Island and the reception complex onshore at Assaluyeh. The line should start operating in mid-September.

Petroenergy says Salman is 142 km (88 mi) offshore Lavan Island. At peak it should deliver 50,000 b/d of crude, 540 MMcf/d of gas, and 6,500 b/d of gas-condensate.

The development’s two drilling rigs, processing, riser, and living quarter platforms and two associated installations were all built by Iranian companies in Boushehr and Bandar Abbas.
