Phase 12, as the main phase of Iran's South Pars gas field, is planned to boost production up to 25 million cubic meters per day (cm/d) in late May or in June, FNA reported on May 18.

The new record of gas output in the phase 12 is expected to happen after a gas desalting unit starts work late in may or early in June. At present, Phase 12 is producing 12 mcm/d of gas. Installation of platforms B and C of Phase 12 of South Pars are expected to be completed in June or July. All wells of this phase are ready to start gas production.

Phase 12 of South Pars gas field is developed to produce 75 mcm/d of rich gas for feeding national pipeline (50 mcm/d) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production units. This phase is also forecasted to supply 120,000 b/d of gas condensate and 750 tons a day of sulfur.

Petropars is the main contractor for this phase development.
