A major plan for collecting and processing associated petroleum gas in the Bidboland Persian Gulf Gas Refinery, in Behbahan County, Khuzestan Province, will come on stream in spring.
Over $3 billion has been invested in the project, which is the largest APG treatment plant so far in Iran, the news portal of the National Petrochemical Company reported.
APG, or flare gas, is gas dissolved in oil. It is a mixture of hydrocarbons obtained during the oil extraction and separation processes.
Collecting APG from oil and gas fields is a priority of the Oil Ministry to help safeguard the environment, prevent loss of national wealth and create jobs.
