Over 115,000 Tons of LPG Exported From Siraf Pars Port

More than 115,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas have been exported from the Siraf Pars Port on the Persian Gulf coast in the past seven months, the port operator said.

“Although the first jetty for loading and exporting LPG from Siraf Pars Port was officially inaugurated last month, its trial operation had started in February and since then, over 115,000 tons of the item, including propane and butane, produced by South Pars Refinery Phase 19 and Kangan Petroleum Refining Company have been exported to the target markets,” the Oil Ministry’s news agency Shana quoted Payam Motamed as saying.

“The construction and operation of the port have been completely handled by Iranian experts and engineers,” he said.

“The first jetty for loading and exporting LPG has a loading capacity of 5,000 cubic meters per hour of cold propane and butane.”

The official noted that the first sulfur storage warehouse with a capacity of 43,000 tons and a jetty for loading and exporting sulfur, with a capacity of 1,000 tons per hour, will be launched by February 2022.

“In order to increase the port’s capacity for LPG loading and export, the second jetty will become operational by the end of the current Iranian year [March 20, 2022],” he added.

The second jetty will also have a capacity for loading 5,000 cubic meters per hour of LPG.

Another sulfur storage facility will be built at the port to double the storage capacity to 86,000 tons.

Siraf Pars Port is the second largest gas export terminal for the output of South Pars Gas Field, built with $450 million investment in an area of 360 hectares in Kangan region, Bushehr Province.
