Tabriz Refinery Signs Tail Gas Agreement

Tabriz Oil Refining Company signed a $12 million agreement on Saturday with a consortium formed by an unnamed German firm and a domestic company on financing and implementing a tail gas treatment project to increase the rate of sulfur recovery. According to Gholamreza Baqeri, managing director of the refinery, Kimia Petrogas Ilia Company and its German partner aim to carry out the venture in 24 months, ISNA reported.
Tail gas treatment entails converting the small amount of sulfur compounds, which were not converted in the sulfur recovery unit (SRU), into hydrogen sulfide and recycle it back to SRU for additional processing.
“The optimization plan will help Tabriz Refinery in East Azarbaijan Province to meet its target of reducing hazardous air pollutants,” he said. The official added that the tail gas treatment unit’s capacity will be proportional to the refinery’s sulfur unit capacity that stands at 110 tons per day.
According to Baqeri, the refinery’s annual production is equivalent to 5.5 million tons of a wide range of products such as liquefied gas, gasoline, kerosene, diesel, jet fuel and feedstock for other industrial units.
