Iran’s South Pars Gas Complex has saved over $55 million due to reduction of time taken to carry out annual overhaul operations, according to Tehran Times

According to Alireza Barzegar, Director of technical inspection at South Pars Gas Complex, “One of the major achievements of the complex in the past few years has been the reduction of overhaul period which has resulted in more production and also more revenue.” The improvement in overhaul operation speed was achieved with the implementation of new supervision and inspection methods in the complex’s first to fifth refineries.

South Pars Gas Complex comprises 14 gas refineries in Southern Iran that are currently processing the gas extracted from the country’s giant South Pars gas field which Iran shares with Qatar in the Persian Gulf.  South Pars accounts roughly for about 8% of the world’s reserves, approximately 18 billion barrels of condensate.
