TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- In a significant move to advance the localization of catalyst production for the oil industry, five remaining research contracts under the comprehensive National Oil Catalyst Document were signed.

The signing ceremony took place with the presence of Morteza Shahmirzaei, Deputy Petroleum Minister and CEO of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC).

The contracts were inked between the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company and prominent academic institutions, including the Polymer and Petrochemical Institute of Iran, University of Tehran, Shahrekord University, and Kharazmi University.

The National Oil Catalyst Document, originally formulated in 2011 through a collaboration between the Ministry of Petroleum’s Deputy for Engineering, Research, and Technology and the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company, underwent a revision to address the updated needs and capabilities of the country. This updated version was unveiled by Shahmirzaei in September 2022 during the 16th International Iran Plast Exhibition.

Shahmirzaei emphasized the critical role of these research contracts in fulfilling the goals outlined in the National Oil Catalyst Document. "These collaborations with leading universities and research institutions will ensure the advancement of domestic technical knowledge and catalyst production capabilities," he stated.

The comprehensive document aims to identify and harness the country's needs and capabilities in catalyst production, aligning with Iran's broader strategic objectives of technological self-sufficiency and economic resilience.
