Iran plans benzene plant at Tabriz facility

Looking to boost its benzene output, the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) of Iran is preparing to set up a new petrochemical unit at its Tabriz facility, located in the fourth largest city of Iran.
 
NPC Director for Planning and Development Ramezan Olwadi said the benzene plant would probably be set up at Tabriz Oil Refinery, Iranian Press TV reported.
 
Also, recently speaking at a press meeting, NPC Managing Director Abdolhossein Bayat said that the corporation would soon officially inaugurate the IIam, Damavand, Noori and Fajr petrochemical complexes, which are nearing completion or are already complete.
 
The four projects form a part of 31 Mehre Mandegar (Lasting Kindness) projects in the petrochemical sector. 21 of these 31 projects have already gone or ready to go operational over the next one month, he added.
 
He said that the 8th phase of the West Ethylene Pipeline is close to completion and other phases would also be completed by September 22, 2013. 
 
The Lorestan and Mahabad petrochemical plants are also slated to go operational by end of March 21, 2014. However, as these plants require ethylene as feedstock to start production of butane-1, they are awaiting launch of West Ethylene Pipeline, he added.
 
Earlier this year, Iran commissioned its biggest gasoline production hub near the central city of Shazand. The Shazand Oil Refinery houses an average production capacity of around one million litres of propylene per day. 
 
Propylene, ethylene, benzene – are some of the petrochemical that find utility in the textile industry.
 
Since past few years, as Iran has significantly widened the range and volume of its petrochemical output, NPC has grown to become the second biggest petrochemical producer and exporter in the Middle East.
