The 55 petrochemical companies in Iran annually use 35 million tons of natural and liquefied gas as feedstock to produce 31 million tons of products, managing director of the National Petrochemical Company said.
“To help raise annual feedstock supply by 14 million tons, seven projects costing $8.5 billion will come on stream before the fiscal year ends in March 2021,” ILNA quoted 
The initiative is aimed at collecting and utilizing natural gas burnt off in the southern oil and gas fields, he said.
The Parsian Sepehr Refinery, with two plants in Fars and Bushehr provinces, and three natural gas liquid projects, namely Dehloran Gas Refinery in Ilam Province, Kharg NGL Plant on Kharg Island off the Persian Gulf and the NGL 3200 project in the southern Khuzestan Province are being completed.
