Iran will produce 25 mm cm of natural gas per day after the development of the first stage of Phase 12 of South Pars gas field, says the project manager.
The last platform of this phase will be made operational in the second half of the next year, Rasoul Fallahnejad was quoted as saying.

Fallahnejad added that 150 km of the three 32-inch pipelines has been built and tested in this phase.
He said Phase 12 of the South Pars gas field, as the largest phase of the project, would produce 84 mm cm of natural gas per day, which is equivalent to 15 % of the national need.

South Pars gas and oil field covers an area of 9,700 sq km, 3,700 sq km of which are in the Iranian territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. The remaining 6,000 sq km, i.e. North Dome, are in Qatari territorial waters.
The Iranian gas field has 14 tcm of natural gas, about 8 % of the world's reserves, and more than 18 bn barrels of LNG resources.
