According to Sepehr Energy Holding, Behrouz Abbasi, the
holding’s CEO, said: "By exploiting the Sabalan Petrochemical project,
direct employment for 300 people will be provided."
"Sabalan Project is one of the plans designated for
the second leap of Iran's petrochemical industry and is ready to be exploited
despite the fact that it faced many problems after the imposition of oppressive
sanctions on the country,” the official said.
“Fortunately, with timely planning and tapping the
capabilities of local engineers and manufacturers, not only the project did not
stop, but also the catalysts required for this petrochemical plant were supplied
locally for the first time,” he went on to add.
Sabalan, Dena and Siraf petrochemical plants are
subsidiaries of Sepehr Energy Holding and are expected to enhance Iran's
methanol production capacity by 5 million tons after full operation.
