South Pars’ SPD-24B platform added 500 million cubic feet (mcf) of gas, after it started transferring sour gas to onshore refineries, said Ali-Asghar Sadeqi, the Deputy Operator of South Pars Gas Field 22-24 Phases, according a Tehran Times report.
The platform’s phases 22, 23, and 24 total output reached 56 million cubic meters of gas, noting that refineries of phases 22-24 have been receiving sour gas through a 32-inch pipeline.
Phases 22-24 are expected to produce 75,000 barrels of gas condensate; 400 tons of sulfur per day; in addition to 50 million cubic meters of methane; 2,900 tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG); and 2,750 tons of ethane.
South Pars is a shared gas field between Iran and Qatar, located in the Persian Gulf. It covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, whereas 3,700 square kilometers and 6,000 square kilometers are respectively located in Iran’s and Qatar’s territorial waters.
The field contains 8% of the world’s reserves of natural gas and approximately 18 billion barrels of condensate.
