Fire at the Bandar Imam Petrochemical Complex

February 08/2011

(Press.TV) -- One person has been killed and 11 injured in a fire that broke out at the Bandar Imam Petrochemical Complex, which is located in the southern Iranian province of Khuzestan. The fire started Friday morning at the NGL fractionation unit of the complex, which is under construction, the Mehr news agency reported.

The Iranian Oil Ministry has not yet explained the cause of the fire. Eight of the injured people are receiving treatment at the Mahshahr Petrochemical Industries Hospital, and the three others were transferred to Tehran for treatment due to the seriousness of their injuries.

Five months ago, a similar incident took place at the same unit, but no casualties were reported.

Since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2010), a number of accidents have occurred at various oil and petrochemical facilities of the country, with 50 casualties. A fire at Well 24 of the Naftshahr oilfield, an explosion and fire at the Kharg Petrochemical Complex, and a fire at the Pardis Petrochemical Complex were some of the worst accidents.
