Ethylene for Mahabad Petrochem Complex

Ethylene feedstock will be supplied to Mahabad Petrochemical Complex before yearend (March 20), said the operator of the West Ethylene pipeline project, Shana news agency reported Saturday.
Mahabad petrochemical plant is projected to produce 300,000 tons of heavy polyethylene and linear and light polyethylene per year. It will meet not only the demands of the city of Mahabad, in West Azerbaijan Province, but also of four neighboring provinces.
Kurdestan Province's governorate facilitated construction of the West Ethylene pipeline by obtaining required rights from the property owners whose land would be crossed by the pipeline, Masoud Meisami said. Having acquired the property rights, pipe-laying operations has recommenced.
Several petrochemical complexes requested to join the West Ethylene pipeline to provide feedstock, among which Dehloran, Ilam, Ardebil, and Tabriz petrochemical complexes have recently obtained permission to use the pipeline.
The main suppliers of the pipeline are Kavian petrochemical complex in Bushehr Province, and Arvand Petrochemical complex in the southern Khuzestan Province. The feedstock for 11 petrochemical complexes will be supplied through the West Ethylene pipeline once it's fully operational. It can also be utilized to export petrochemicals to the western and northern neighbors, namely Iraq, Turkey, Georgia, and Armenia.
The 1,200 km long West Ethylene Pipeline is the world's longest ethylene pipeline, designed to transport ethylene from Assalouyeh to manufacturers of downstream plastic products in the Kermanshah Province. It will have the capacity to transport 2.5 million metric tons of ethylene per annum.
