plant is touted as the largest associated petroleum gas (APG) collection and
processing facility in Iran with a daily processing capacity of more than 56
million cubic meters and an investment of $3.4 billion.
Persian Gulf Bidboland Gas Refinery Project, as one of the largest gas

much as the output of two phases of South Pars. If the complex operates at full
capacity, it will generate $1.5 billion a year for the country.
super project was approved by the Economic Council in 2003.
10.4 million tons of methane, 1.5 million tons of ethane, 1 million tons of
propane, 0.5 million tons of butane, 0.6 million tons of gas condensate, 0.9
million tons of acid gas will be produced at Persian Gulf Bidboland Gas
Refinery. The methane produced by this refinery will be injected into the
national gas network and ethane will be the feedstock of Gachsaran
of the total investment in this project is the share of domestic construction
and 63 million accident-free man/hours have been registered in the project’s
project created 15,000 jobs during its construction. During operation it
creates jobs for 1,000 people.

of effluent leaves the site thanks to installation of a new ZDL (zero discharge
liquid) recovery system in the facility.

project in East Karun was signed between the Persian Gulf Petrochemical
Industries Company (PGPIC) and the National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC).
