The managing executer of phase 19 of South Pars reported of the increase in the phase gas production and stated that with the operationalisation of 19A platform, the daily gas extraction of the phase from the South Pars would be increased to 42 million m3 per day.

As reported by the public relations of Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC), Hamidreza Masoudi stated that currently and only of platforms 19A, 19C, and SPD2, about 42 million m3 of rich sour gas are extracted from the South Pars common field which sent to the refineries of the mentioned phase.

The managing executer of phase 19 also commented about the production of the sweet gas in the sweetening rows of the phase.He announced that the rows 1, 3, and 4 are in the operationalisation tropic and about 37 million m3 of sweet & processed gas would be injected to the 6th line after finalising the refining processes.

Masoudi announced the production of more than 5 million bbls of gas condensates in the phase and stated that 4.5 million bbls of the same product have been exported to the target markets.

The managing executer of phase 19 pointed to the full operationalisation and finalisation of gas receipt units in the refinery and added that the available gas condensates of sour gas of the platforms are categorised and transmitted to the gas condensates stabilisation unit and after being processed, the product would be kept in gas condensates storage tanks.

He stated that the mentioned units are in the production and added: “one of the compressors belonging to the gas condensates unit has been put in the production and the other compressor is ready for being operationalised”.

Pointing to the great records in the phase 19 of South Pars, he stated that setting up and production of gas from 3 platforms with the total capacity of 1.5 billion ft3, the fastest instalment record, setting up and production of gas from platform 19 (within 70 days), and 3 sweetening rows within a 7 month period have been unprecedented since South Pars beginning.

The executer of phase 19 counted the weekly production of gas in this phase as 254 million m3 and stated that about 3.2 billion m3 of gas have been produced since the sweet gas production activities.

Announcing that the first row of Butane and Propane of phase 19 would be operationalised by December mid, Masoudi stated that with the finalisation of two trains of LPG, 2800 t of Propane and Butane would be produced in this phase each day.

He added: “With the made schedule, it is prognosticated that the last remained platform of phase 19 with the extraction capacity of 500 million ft3 of gas would be loaded from the industrial yard of IOEC in Khoramshahr by January 2017 and its operationalisation procedures would be done a week after its instalment procedures in March”.

Pointing to the environmental obligations, the managing executer of the phase 19 of South Pars stated that the hired procedures in order to reduce the gas burning in this phase have been notable. He added: “With the operationalisation of the Off-Gas compressors of the second row of gas condensates stabilisation units & the Regeneration compressors of 1st, 2nd and 4th rows of sweetening, the daily waste and gas burning of 4 million m3 of gas in this phase has been avoided.

Masoudi emphasised on the efforts made by the employer and contractor of the development project of phase 19 in reducing the pollution of gas-burning in the phase and claimed that two rows of the sulfur recovery unit would be operationalised fully by January.
