Hmariner took apart in SMM (the leading international maritime trade fair as a one of Iran delegation)

With over 2,100 exhibitors, SMM is the leading international trade fair of the maritime industry. From 6 to 9 September, industry leaders from roughly 70 countries will present innovative equipment, new industry trends and future-looking technologies for the maritime sector. This year, Green Propulsion – alternative, low-emission propulsion technologies such as LNG, methanol, hybrid and dual-fuel as well as fuel cell systems – will be a key topic on the SMM agenda, along with Big Data and Digitization.


According to SMM report “for the first time Iran will be represented by a national pavilion at SMM Hamburg, the leading international maritime trade fair. “An industry fair is a great platform for building new relationships and getting to know each other,” says Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH. From 6 to 9 September 2016, Iran will showcase its capabilities in an area of its own. “We are setting the stage for the formation of new international business contacts, providing opportunities for fair participants to become acquainted with Iranian companies and potential customers,” says Aufderheide.  




A delegation from Hamburg Messe had visited Iran as early as December 2015 to attend Iranimex, the International Marine Industries Exhibition. On occasion of this visit, the group invited potential visitors, exhibitors and delegations to Germany. “Iranian businesses are showing a lively interest in European products and German know-how,” says the CEO.


“SMM is the maritime sector’s most important platform for face-to-face networking and closing business deals,” says Hauke Schlegel, chairman of the German engineering industry association VDMA. Following the lifting of the trade sanctions, the country is in great need of innovation and new ships, he adds. “We see great potential for collaboration with Iran,” says Schlegel. Since Iran continues to procure its shipbuilding equipment and technology from Germany and Europe, the country is of vital strategic importance to the supply industry, the VDMA chairman adds. ”

Phases 15, 16 of South Pars Nearly Ready

TEHRAN (FNA)- Phases 15,16 of the massive offshore South Pars gas field are close to starting production, the project manager said.

Reza Forouzesh said the phases are expected to come online by mid-October.
Khatam al-Anbia, the engineering arm of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, won the tender bid for these two phases in 2005.
He said that the first desalting train of the refinery was launched in 2013.
Production from Phases 15&16 of the offshore South Pars, jointly operated by Iran and Qatar, is forecast to reach 1.7 bcf/d in a month.
The two phases are currently producing 31 mcm/d of gas, he said, adding that a drilling rig is to be installed in these phases for completing the remaining wells.
Phases 15&16 development of South Pars is aimed at producing 56.6 mcm/d of natural gas, 75,000 b/d of gas condensate, 400 tons a day of sulfur, 1.05 million tons a year of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and one million tons of ethane for feeding petrochemical plants.
A consortium comprising Iranian companies is in charge of offshore and onshore development of Phases 15&16 of South Pars.
South Pars is currently supplying 300 mcm/d of gas, which equals 72% of Iran’s total gas consumption. Nearly 100 mcm/d is projected to be added to South Pars gas production capacity while all 29 phases are expected to have been developed in three years.

South Pars Phase 21 Operational by Winter

[:en]TEHRAN (FNA)- Phase 21 of the supergiant South Pars gas field is 78% complete and its gas, after being refined, will be injected to national gas trunk lines by winter to boost supply during the cold, the project manager of the phase said.

Alireza Ebadi was quotes by shana as saying, phases 20-21 of the gas field are prioritized over other phases by Iranian petroleum ministry.
He said the two phases will be fully operational by October 2016.
11 wells have been drilled at the phases of which 2 are becoming prepared for startup at Phase 21.
Furthermore, 7 wells at Phase 21 and 6 wells at Phase 20 will come on-stream by October 2015, Ebadi said.
Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) has awarded construction of offshore platforms of the phases to Iranian Offshore Engineering and Construction Company in Khoramashahr Yard.
The platforms are 81% complete and are expected to be transferred to their designated spots at the phases by October, said Ebadi.
Pars Oil and Gas Company has started underwater pipe-laying operations for the phases, he added.
Once completed the 105-km long pipelines will deliver sour gas recovered from the phases to the onshore refining facilities in Assaluyeh, south of Iran, said Ebadi.
Phases 20 and 21 of South Pars gas filed are being developed for production of 50mcm /d of processed natural gas for domestic consumption, a million tons a year of ethane for use by petrochemical plants, 1.05 million tons a year of high-quality liquefied gas for exports and 75,000 barrels a day of condensate.
South Pars, divided into 29 development phases, holds 40 tcm of natural gas, or 21% of world’s total gas reserves, and 50 billion barrels of condensate.
South Pars covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, 3,700 square kilometers of which are in Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. The remaining 6,000 square kilometers are situated in Qatar’s territorial waters.
The gas field is estimated to contain a significant amount of natural gas, accounting for about eight percent of the world’s reserves, and approximately 18 billion barrels of condensate.
