The Kavian petrochemical plant in Iran can quadruple its output and increase it to two million tons per annum after it receives sufficient feedstock from South Pars gas field, FARS News Agency reported quoting the Ministry of Petroleum.
 
Ramezan Owladi, manager of the Kavian petrochemical plant said the plant is likely to receive adequate feedstock form phases 15 and 16 of the South Pars gas field.
 
At present, the first train of Kavian plant is operating at 50 percent capacity, and the second train is in the pre-commissioning stage, Mr. Owladi said.
 
He added that the plant is all set to receive more ethane from South Pars to boost its production.
 
According to him, Kavian has potential to produce one million tons of ethylene annually, making it one of the largest producers of ethylene in Iran.
 
Kavian Petrochemical Complex, part of the world’s biggest petrochemical complex in Asalouyeh, commenced first phase operation with annual production capacity of one million tons of ethylene in December 2012.
 
The second phase of the complex is expected to go operational by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2015). By then, the complex would have a capacity to process 2.58 million tons of feedstock to produce 2 million tons of ethylene per annum.
 
Once the second phase of the Kavian petrochemical plant begins operations, the plant would be able to supply feedstock to other petrochemical plants located on route of the West Ethylene Pipeline.
