Kavian Petrochemical Complex’s output will rise by 25% in 2019 compared to the current production volume of 1.6 million tons, managing director of the company said.
“As soon as more South Pars Gas Field phases in the Persian Gulf become operational by March 2019, more natural gas will be supplied to the complex, one of Iran’s largest ethylene producers,” Ramazan Oladi was also quoted as saying by NIPNA, the National Petrochemical Company’s news agency. 
According to the official, the plan to raise output to 2 million tons depends on the delivery of more ethane, as the feedstock for ethylene, to the plant.
“In view of the imminent launch of the remaining South Pars phases [11, 13, 14, 22-24], the mega project is predicted to have excess ethane production in two years,” he said.
