A fire broke out in a petrochemical plant in the southern Iranian province of Bushehr, injuring four people. The plant is owned by Mobin Petrochemical Company which stopped gas flow to the pressure control station to avoid further damage once gas runs, reported Press Tv.
The Crisis Management Coordinator in the southern province of Bushehr, Qassem Qaedi, mentioned that the fire is currently under control and does not pose any threats to the facilities in the South Pars gas fields in Assaluyeh, located in the Persian Gulf, according to Reuters.
Mobin’s plant is one of several Iranian petrochemical facilities to catch on fire during the last few months. Earlier, the country’s oil minister, attributed the cause of these incidents to privatized petrochemical companies cutting back budgets for health and safety inspections.
