Siemens has been awarded a contract by Hampa Engineering to supply 12 compressor trains for two onshore natural gas processing plants in Iran, Tehran Times reported.

The 12 compressor trains each contain a Siemens STC-SV vertical split compressor. Ten of the 12 trains are for the Mohr C2+ hydrocarbon recovery plant, located in Fars Province in south-central Iran. Four of these STC-SV compressors will be driven by Siemens SGT-700 gas turbines. Four more compressor trains for the Mohr plant will be driven by Siemens SGT-100 gas turbines, and two others will be driven by an electric motor.

The company Palayesh Parsian Sepehr will operate the plants, and commercial operation is expected end of 2018, Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide informed.

Part of the hydrocarbons produced at Mohr plant will be delivered to the domestic Iranian gas market, while the long-chained hydrocarbons will be transported in a pipeline to the Iranian coast.

The hydrocarbons will be further fractionated to produce important feed stock at the Assaluyeh plant in Bushehr Province for the petrochemical industry, including ethane, propane, and butane.
