The second phase of Iran’s West Ethylene Pipeline would be operational by early summer, as 70 percent of the work for the same has already been completed, FARS News Agency reported.
Majid Mahmoudian, Managing Director of Petrochemical Development Management Company, informed the Oil Ministry’s website that work on two branches of the trunk line towards Miandoab and Saghez cities has been completed 75 percent and 55 percent, respectively, while part of the pipeline between Kermanchah and Sanandaj cities is over and under final trials are currently being conducted. 
Divided into 16 offshoots, the West Ethylene pipeline is 2,504 km long, including the Dena region, which caters to the feedstock requirements of Mamasani, Borojen, Kazeron and Dehdasht petrochemical plants, Mr. Mohmoudian said. 
The 16th part of the pipeline transmits ethylene through a 10-inch pipeline from Miandoab to 150,000 tons Tabriz petrochemical plant, he added.
He said catering to the requirements of Maha, Kurdistan and Lorestan petrochemical plants is one of the main reasons for expediting work on construction of the pipeline.
The first phase of the West Ethylene Pipeline stretching 1,200 km – the world’s longest ethylene pipeline – was unveiled by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the latter half of 2012. The pipeline transfers ethylene produced by Kavian Petrochemical Plant, based in southern part of the country, to petrochemical plants in the western region.
