IRAN: Kavian Petrochemical eyes more ethane to achieve full capacity of 2-millon t/y

Kavian started up the first of two 1-million-t/y trains in the Pars Special Economic Energy Zone in late 2012. The first train is operating at only 50 % of capacity and the second train is now in the pre-commissioning phase, Owladi said.

Phases 15 and 16 of the South Pars gas field are expected to produce 100-million cubic meters a day of gas this year.
