TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Iran's Persian Gulf Bidboland Gas Refining Company (PGBRC) has begun test delivery of ethane to Gachsaran Petrochemical Plant via a 90-kilometre pipeline.


The test delivery was launched after Hassan Neshanzadeh Moghaddam, deputy for planning and business development at Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC), visited PGBRC's facilities and reviewed the progress of its development projects and production status.

He also inspected the site preparation for the construction of a new value chain project for PDH/PP Bidboland by PGPIC, which will use ethane as feedstock.

Neshanzadeh Moghaddam said PGBRC was one of the largest gas refineries in the Middle East and had a significant role in supplying feedstock to petrochemical plants in the region.

He said PGBRC had increased its production capacity from 56 million cubic metres per day to 76 million cubic metres per day by implementing several development projects.

He added that PGBRC was also implementing a major project to collect flare gas from Rag Sefid 1, Pazenan recovery, Aghajari 2 station, Eisaar power plant and NGL 900 and 1200 pipelines, which would reduce environmental pollution and increase gas recovery.

He expressed hope that PGBRC would soon become a leading model in risk management and process safety knowledge in the global class.
