Selection of Chabahar region as a future petrochemical hub by the Iranian Government, and taking advantage of the outstanding strategic position of that region were the main incentives for choosing the Free Trade-Industrial Zone of Chabahar as the location for Mokran Petrochemical Complex.
Accordingly, Negin Mokran Development Petrochemical Company (NMPC) was established and designated as the master developer of the project; to take the responsibility of creation and development of Iran’s third petrochemical hub. Covering an area of approximately 1,200 hectares, Mokran Petrochemical Complex phase1 consists of 5 High tech GTX plants and one urea plants. plus sections reserved for construction of additional plants and downstream units.
NMPC is in charge of creating the infrastructures (acquiring land, preparing the foundations for the complex), construction of concentrated utility services; and construction and development of storage, tanks and terminals. National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) is in charge of constructing the 7th (natural gas) pipeline, 902 KM of which has been completed from Asaluyeh to Iranshahr and the remaining 290 KM is under construction from Iranshahr to Chabahar by NMPC via an EPCF contract with NIGS.
Upon completion of the project, NMPC will manage the distribution of the utility services, the product pipeline, storage, tanks and terminals, as well as managing the civic affairs of the complex.
NMPC has thus far spent about US$60 million for completing several tasks, including: completion of conceptual, technical and economic feasibility studies; Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study for acquiring related permits from the responsible agencies; leveling and foundation work on the land; providing water and electricity, constructing access roads and surface runoff channeling network.
By bringing employment and development to the region and creating attractive opportunities for our investors, we believe that the future can only become brighter.
