To complete the value chain in the petrochemical sector, the National Petrochemical Company has issued directives for raising ethylene production in petrochemical complexes in the port city of Asalouyeh, Bushehr Province, NPC’s director for projects said.

"Petrochem complexes, namely Kavian, Morvarid, Jam and Arya Sasol, have been commissioned to increase their ethylene output gradually by 30% in maximum two years, in which case the country's annual output will amount to 12.7 million tons," Ali Mohammad Bosaqzadeh was quoted as saying by NPC’s news agency NIPNA. 

According to the official, the short-term plan, whose feasibility studies have been finalized, is aimed at completing value-added chain for olefin products.
