Iran will sign a contract next week with an
international consortium for the construction of the world's largest
gas refinery in the southern port city of Assalouyeh, IRNA reported from Tehran on Monday, quoting the press.
The Persian-language daily `Jomhouri-E Eslami' quoted Gholam-Reza
Manouchehri, the director of phases 6, 7 and 8 of the South Pars gas
project, as saying that Iran's Petropars company will sign the
contract worth Dlrs 1.207 billion with the consortium.
The consortium, Manouchehri added, comprises Japan Gasoline
Company (JGC) and Toyo Engineering Corporation from Japan, Dailem
from South Korea, and the Industrial Development and Renovation
Organization (IDRO) from Iran.
He said the shares of Toyo and IDRO in the refinery project will
be 28 percent, while those of JGC and Dailem will be 22 percent each.
Manouchehri further said that the whole project will be finished
in 43 months, stressing the first phase of the project will be
completed in 34 months.
He said that 51 percent of the facilities of the project will be
provided by domestic enterprises.
Manouchehri further put the anticipated total daily production of
the refinery at three billion cu.m.
He also put the daily production of liquefied gas of the refinery
at 120,000 tons, stressing that a daily production of 3,700 tons of
liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will be exported from the refinery,
most probably to Japan.
