YASOUJ (NIPNA) – Iranian Minister of Petroleum Javad Owji said Gachsaran Petrochemical Plant will come online by September next year.

Speaking to the people in the western province of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Friday, Owji said over 62 corporate social responsibility plans are scheduled to be implemented in the province.

He said the province’s oil production capacity stands at 620,000 b/d while it sits atop 13% of the country’s oil reserves.

Emphasizing the need to support the people living in the areas where the oil industry operates, the Minister of Petroleum stated: “More than 62 social responsibility projects are being implemented in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad.”

"I believe that industrial towns have a good capacity, and if the oil industry is to develop, the power of these towns must be used," Owji said.

He further said, “Given the efforts of the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC) and the allocated credit, I promise you that this project will be operational by September 2022."

Owji, stating that the operation of this project will create employment and favorable income for the province, also referred to the development of the petrochemical chain, and said: “Part of the ethylene produced by Gachsaran Petrochemical Complex will be used to feed the petrochemical unit located next to this complex.”

He announced the annual production capacity of this petrochemical complex as one million to one million and 200 thousand tons of ethylene, noting: “The proposal to build a petrochemical unit next to this complex has been given to help eliminate poverty in the county.”
