Mehrdad Dinian, the manager of Boushehr Petrochemical Complex, said
the completion of the sour gas chain from sweetening to sulfur, ethane and
methane separation, and consequently methanol production and maximum utility
supply within the complex had resulted in 95 percent capacity methanol
production this Iranian calendar year which began on March 21.
He cited the continuous training of operating personnel to better control
and check the unit's control parameters with the aim of optimizing production
and early detection of problems, accurate and continuous site inspection and
reporting of equipment failures and leaks as soon as possible as factors that
had a significant impact on increasing methanol production.
Dinian added: "Controlling equipment problems and operating
methods in parts that had technical problems and could not be done easily and
without taking them out of service was another issue that the operating unit
was able to control the conditions and maintain production successfully by
using technical techniques and continuous production stoppage."
Boushehr Petrochemical Company is one of the largest and most valuable
chains of the petrochemical industry and also the only gas refinery in this
