Gas production at South Pars is set to carry on rising in 2016 as new phases are added and production from existing projects is ramped up, reports Interfax.
Phases 15 and 16 are yet to be officially inaugurated but are currently producing around 30-36 million cubic metres per day (MMcm/d) and are set to increase to their joint capacity of 50 MMcm/d of gas and 80,000 barrels per day of condensate over the next few months.
Phase 18 of South Pars was inaugurated in November and production will increase alongside Phase 17 over the next year to their combined capacity of 50 MMcm/d of gas and 80,000 b/d of condensate.
Phases 20 and 21 may be completed in 2017 or 2018, with phases 22-24 expected to be commissioned in 2020, while phases 13 and 14 could follow soon after that.
