Gigantic Offshore Platform Held in Place in Iran’s South Pars

Iranian experts installed the first platform of Phase 13 of the South Pars gas field after shipping the megastructure in the Persian Gulf on Wednesday.

Loading of the homegrown platform, weighing 2,200 tons, had begun in the southern port city of Bushehr around six weeks ago.

According to the project’s contractor, Phase 13 includes a total of four offshore platforms with advanced gas-extracting structures which would send gas from 38 offshore wells to onshore refineries on the Kangan coast through two 32-inch gas transmission pipelines at a distance of 90 kilometers.

The main platform that was held in place on Wednesday morning is expected to produce 500 million cubic feet of gas every day after coming on stream next month.

In April 2017, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated phases 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 of the South Pars gas field, whose development has been divided into 28 phases.

The energy-rich zone is located in the Persian Gulf straddling the maritime border between Iran and Qatar, covering an area of 9,700 square kilometers, of which 3,700 square kilometers belongs to Iran.

It is estimated that the Iranian section of the field contains 14 trillion cubic meters of gas and 18 billion barrels of condensates in place
