Iran targets to produce 680 million cubic meters per day (mcm/d) from its supergiant South Pars gas field, according to Tehran Times.

According to the Managing Director of Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC), Mohammad Meshkinfam, Iran is currently producing 630 mcm/d of gas from the joint offshore field.

Development projects in phases 13, 14, and 22-24 are ongoing by domestic companies; in addition, gas production from phase 14 would be initiated soon. Platform 14B was ready for production and would become operational as soon as it becomes linked with a pipeline to deliver its gas to onshore processing facilities.

“One of the major goals of POGC this year has been completing the offshore sections of the phases 13, 14, and 22 to 24 of South Pars, which are now underway based on the approved plans of the Oil Ministry,” Meshkinfam said.

Three other platforms would be loaded to their offshore spots in South Pars by the end of the current Iranian calendar year in March 2020.
