To fast track gas production in the South Pars Gas Field in the Persian Gulf, the first offshore platform of the field's Phase 13 was installed on Wednesday.
According to Payam Motamed, operator of Phase 13, platform 13B, weighing 2,200 tons, was installed on the jacket with the help of the domestic floating crane HL-5000, the National Iranian Oil Company's news portal reported.
The operator said after hook up operations are completed later in the month, the platform can go on stream and produce 14 million cubic meters of natural gas per day, which equals “almost half the capacity of a standard South Pars phase.”
