Iran completes laying pipes for large offshore gas project


(MENAFN) Five years after international businesses abandoned the project under American pressure, Iran claims local contractors have completed pipe laying operations for a significant natural gas project in the Persian Gulf.

According to a report published on Saturday by the Iranian Oil Ministry's new agency Shana, pipeline laying for South Pars gas field phase 11 began on July 28 and finished on Friday.

The article showed that the project had finished installing 15 kilometers of pipe, including one for a 32-inch underwater sour gas pipeline.

The South Pars, the biggest gas field in the world, is located on the maritime boundary between Iran and Qatar in the Persian Gulf. Phase 11 of the field's 28 stages is the most challenging of them all.

After Chinese contractors and French energy company Total withdrew from the project because to new US sanctions on Iran, Iran opted to award the project to indigenous firms in 2019.
