Iranian petrochemical plants supplied 27.5 million tons of products over the course of the first half of the current Iranian calendar year, which began on March 21.
According to the National Petrochemical Company (NPC), Director Of Production Control at the company Ghodratollah Farajpour said the output was achieved despite the fact that many of the complexes were undergoing major repairs during the period which ended on September 22.
Maroon, Shiraz Petrochemical Plant’s third methanol and urea unit, Fanavaran Methanol Production Unit, Khark Petrochemical Plant, and Zagros Plant’s second methanol unit along with Aryasassol and Pars Petrochemical Plant underwent an overhaul during the period, he said.
“Despite the extensive repairs in the first half of this year, the figures are promising,” Farjepour said. “So far, we have managed to cover nearly 80 percent of the nominal production capacity, which is a good figure.”
Referring to the fact that production of about 27.5 million tons in the first half of this year showed a 2-percent growth year-on-year, he said considering that in the second half of the year there will be fewer major overhauls, the output was expected to rise in the period.
