Kenya buys Iranian gas condensate

TEHRAN, Feb. 16 (MNA) – An IOOC official said two gas condensate and liquid gas shipments have been deployed to Kenya.

Mohammad Reza Safari Rad, Deputy Director of Siri NGL Refinery at Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC), described the major achievements of the refinery saying “Siri Refinery possesses a daily refining capacity of 143 million cubic feet of natural gas which is received from adjacent oil platforms.”

“Currently, the extracted gas from Siri oil fields are transferred to Kish and Qeshm islands with two 83-km and 104-km pipelines,” he added.

The officials noted that gas demands of Kish and Siri power plants are supplied with associated petroleum gas (APG) which is a form of natural gas which is found with deposits of petroleum; “utilization of associated gas instead of oil products like gasoil has resulted in significant economic savings.”

Safari Rad further underlined “so far, in addition to natural gas, various gas products have been separately extracted and exported at Siri Refinery including propane, butane as well as condensate from associated gas.”

“A new shipment of gas condensate produced at the refinery will soon be deployed to the world market,” stressed the official confirming “harbors and maritime structures have been established on the margins of Siri Refinery for the mooring of large ships and oil tankers.”

Safari Rad evaluated the annual value of goods produced in Siri NGL Refinery to be roughly 100 million dollars concluding “so far, two cargos of gas condensate and liquefied gas have been sent to the African country of Kenya.”
