Jun 23, 2004 02:00 AM

President Mohammad Khatami launched four major petrochemical projects located in the Special Economic Petrochemical Zone Organization. Minister of Oil Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, several vice-presidents, a number of lawmakers, managing-director of the National Petrochemical Company as well as state officials were present in the function.
Bandar Imam Special Petrochemical Zone is located 90 km from Abadan and Khorramshahr.

Utility project is one of the projects. Fajr Petrochemical was established in 1998 and handled the project a year later. The $ 500 mm project incorporates gas-fuelled power stations, steam production unit, water treatment sector, sewerage treatment and distribution network.
Water and natural gas, originating from Karun River and national gas pipeline, are fed into the complex. The power station and steam generation unit are designed to generate 585 MW of electricity and 300 tons of steam per hour. Five gas-operating turbines, manufactured by Alstom, can generate 117 MW per hour of electricity.

The water treatment section can handle 250 cm per hour of potable water, 3,900 cm per hour of osmosis water and 980 cm per hour of mineral water. The third methanol unit was built through investing $ 134.47 mm and is now producing at 85 % of its nominal capacity (850,000 tpy).
Based on current projections out of a total of 1 mm tons methanol production capacity per year (annual capacity) 178,000 tons will be used for producing MTBE in addition to 82,000 tons acetic acid while 740,000 tons will be allocated to exports.

The value of the third methanol unit's products as the country's biggest methanol unit stands at about $ 200 mm per year, which has been pres-old up to 2007. The engineering polymers unit of Khuzestan Petrochemical Company has been made operational through an investment of $ 190.6 mm and will produce 5,000 tons liquid epoxy resin, 5,000 tons solid epoxy resin, and 30,000 tons base phenol A per annum.
Fajr utilities project has been made operational through investing $ 310 mm and 1,190 bn rials and can produce 585 MW electricity, 830 tons per hour steam, 3,900 cm per hour reserves osmotic water, 980 cm per hour distilled water, 400 cm per hour service water, 250 cm per hour drinking water, 16,5000 normal cm per hour service air, 15,000 normal cm per hour precision tool air, 18,000 normal cm per hour nitrogen and 19,000 normal cm per hour oxygen.

Also, the first export dock at the special economic petrochemical zone has been constructed at the cost of $ 3.5 mm and 150 bn rials.
The dock will be used for exporting petrochemical liquids produced at the zone at the capacity of 2 mm tons and the first methanol consignment (5,0000 tons) was exported from the dock to India earlier.
