A loading pier for liquefied petroleum gas export was inaugurated by President Hassan Rouhani via videoconference on Monday in the Pars Kangan (Tombak Port) region of Pars Special Energy Economic Zone, 50 kilometers north of the port of Asalouyeh in Bushehr Province, the project manager said.
“An undertaking of Khatam al-Anbiya Construction Headquarters, an Iranian engineering company affiliated to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the project was completed in seven years over a 360-hectare plot in the form of an EPC [engineering, procurement and construction] contract worth $400 million,” the Oil Ministry’s news portal quoted Payam Motamed as saying.
“The facility includes two LPG loading arms, each of which can berth ships with a capacity of 50,000 tons. It is also equipped with a modern arm to load sulfur for vessels with capacities ranging from 5 to 50,000 tons.”
