In tandem with the government's push to build petrochemical complexes in the southern coastal region, some under-construction complexes are also considering relocation of sites to that area.
According to IRNA, the move is envisaged to have multiple advantages: feedstock would be more accessible since a majority of suppliers are located in the Persian Gulf region, transport and shipment can be cost-effective and more importantly, water supply would be less of a concern.
In line with the scheme, plans are underway to build Mokran Petrochemical Complex, Iran's largest petrochemical hub, in the southern Chabahar.
