Iran plans to double LPG production
Iran plans to double its Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) production, the Deputy Director of International Affairs for Marketing and Crude Oil Operation in the National Iranian Oil Company, Safar-Ali Karamati, said.
"Iran currently produces 8 million tons of LPG annually of which 3 million tons comes from natural gas, 2.5 million tons comes from petrochemical plants and the rest is supplied by refineries across the country," Shana cited him as saying.
He further added that inauguration of south Pars phases will almost double the Iranian LPG output.
Keramati underlined Iran as one of the biggest and most reliable suppliers of LPG, bitumen and base oils, adding that Asia makes a significant part of Iran’s export market for these commodities.
