The world's largest ethylene production complex, the Jam Petrochemical Plant, has been opened in the southern Iranian city of Asalouyeh.

The complex will boast of an annual production of 1,321,000 tons of ethylene, which is widely used in industry and medicine, IRNA reported.

The Jam Petrochemical Plant will increase its production to 4.2 million tons within the next few years.

The complex was inaugurated by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was accompanied by Oil Minister Gholam-Hossein Nozari, on Sunday in his visit to the port city of Asalouyeh -- home to Iran's giant South Pars gas field in the Persian Gulf.

Phases 6, 7 and 8 of South Pars were opened in October 2008 with a total export capacity of 158,000 barrels of gas condensates and 4,450 tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per day.
