Iran installs South Pars platform. Breaks speed record
Iran has installed an offshore platform at Phase 19 of the supergiant offshore gas field South Pars.
National Iranian Oil Co. said Sunday that the installation of the platform 19A had taken place on Saturday.
The company said that the installation of the structure, weighing over 2,700 tons, took only two hours “which is a new record in installation of such mega structures in offshore operations in Iran.”
Phase 19 of the South Pars gas field is located in border regions with Qatar, which shares the field with Iran in Persian Gulf waters.
Once operational, NIOC said, the phase will add 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas output to the field’s daily production. The 19 A platform itself has a capacity of recovering half a billion cubic feet of gas a day.
