Iran’s construction of third biggest petchem complex underway
Mokran Petrochemical Complex will reportedly consist of four urea-ammonia plants, four methanol-ammonia plants, four methanol plants, two olefin plants, one aromatics plant, one methanol-to-propylene plant and one crystal melamine plant. Also, additional plants will be constructed in three sections as well as 30 downstream units to be built in nine other sections.
The complex is estimated to have a total production capacity of 25 million tons/year, the release said. The majority of the production will be exported while the rest is planned to be used as feed for other plants and downstream units or supplied to the domestic markets.
The Mokran Project consists of 3 phases, the first of which started in 2016 and is expected to be completed by 2019-2020. The company reportedly said that the construction of each phase is estimated to take three to four years. The completion of the last phase is expected to last until 2024.
