The sharp rise in household gas consumption due to the cold weather has resulted in cutting gas supply to other sectors, including cement factories and power plants. In the past week feedstock (natural gas) supply to some petrochemical plants was reduced or completely cut off.
According to Eghtesadonline website, Pardis Petrochemical Complex in Asalouyeh, Bushehr Province, has reported that its urea and ammonia units have ceased production because gas supplies were discontinued.
Khorasan, Zagros and Kermanshah petrochemical plants have also announced cuts in their gas. The amount of natural gas supplied to Mobin, Marjan and Shiraz petrochemical complexes as feedstock has been reduced.
