Ali Mohammad Bossaqzadeh, director of
production control at National Petrochemical Company (NPC), said the rise in
feedstock supply to the plants during the first 9 months of the current Iranian
calendar year which began on March 21 gave rise to the output of the plants fed
by West Ethylene Pipeline, NPC reported.
As an example, he said, Kurdistan Petrochemical
Plant operated at 117% of its nameplate capacity during the period.
Iran's petrochemical plants supplied 38
million tons of petrochemicals during the 9 months which shows a 14% rise in
domestic sales and about 6% rise in exports of the items year-on-year.
