TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The inauguration of Gachsaran Petrochemical Plant, the largest industrial project in the history of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, took place on Monday in the presence of Ayatollah Dr. Raeisi, the President of Iran, several members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, senior officials of the Ministry of Petroleum, Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC) executives, and provincial authorities.

According to the Public Relations Department of PGPIC, this project, with a budget of €1.3 billion, is one of the most important projects of the Ministry of Petroleum during the President's provincial visit to Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad. It is a project that has regained momentum in the past two years, in line with the development approach of the 13th administration and the strategic policies of the Persian Gulf Holding, putting an end to the 17-year-long anticipation of the people of Gachsaran.

According to the report, at Gachsaran Petrochemical Company, where 83% of its parts and equipment are domestically produced, it is planned to produce one million tons of ethylene and 84,000 tons of C3+ annually.

During the launch operations, more than 3,000 individuals, mainly local workforce, were employed, and upon operation, 1,000 individuals will be employed in this project.

Gachsaran Petrochemical Company is one of the 11 major and intra-complex projects previously mentioned by the CEO of Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company as the projects eligible for inauguration in the calendar year of 1402, which began on March 21, serving as examples and symbols of this group's commitment to being the flagbearer of petrochemical industry development for completing unfinished plans with the goal of creating wealth.

Previously, in the month of Ordibehesht of this year, the commissioning of the Hoveyzeh Gas Refinery began with the aim of extinguishing the flaring gases of the West Karun and protecting the environment.
