TEHRAN (NIPNA) – The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said following several rounds of negotiations and discussions with Russia, a list of products and equipment needed by the northern neighbor has been provided to us and their export is underway.

Morteza Shahmirzaei, who is also deputy petroleum minister for petrochemical affairs, while honoring the government week, underlined the company's actions in the past year and the change of approaches, and said: “Naturally, with the change of administration, the approaches to various issues also changed.”

He added: “Relying on domestic power and localization of equipment is one of the approaches of the 13th administration in the petrochemical industry. In this regard, according to the plan, by the end of the first term, all the catalysts needed by the petrochemical industry will be localized. With the approval of the petroleum minister, it was decided to prepare and finalize the comprehensive catalyst document in the first year.”

Shahmirzaei said: “Another of the company's measures to support domestic manufacturing was to stipulate that petrochemical projects use domestic equipment as much as possible in granting permits and approvals in principle.”
