Iran builds butene unit at Jam petrochemical complex

February 27/2012

(chemicals-technology) -- An USD 85m butene production unit is ready for production operations at Jam petrochemical complex in Assaluyeh, Iran.

The complex is an onshore installation of the South Pars gas field, which is located in the Persian Gulf and shared between Iran and Qatar.
Jam petrochemical complex managing director Mostafa Mortazavi told Shana that the butene production facility constructed at Assaluyeh is one of the largest and most sophisticated units in the world.
Mortazavi said the unit's production capacity stands at 115,000tpa when adding the production of petrochemical complexes at Bandar Imam, Arak and Tabriz, but its annual output is no more than 30,000tpa.

"By building the unit at Jam petrochemical complex the country's need for the product, as a main feedstock for light poly ethylene units will be met fully," Mortazavi added.
He said in addition to meeting domestic needs, part of the product would be exported to other countries which will turn Iran into one of the exporters of the product.
Jam petrochemical complex, which is the biggest olefin unit in the world, has a capacity of 1.32 million tons of ethylene.

The complex also comprises a polypropylene (PP) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) unit, both with a production capacity of 300,000t, while the ethylene glycol unit and linear high density polyethylene (LHDPE) have production capacities of 443,000t and 300,000t respectively.
