Methanol plant in Iran

Lurgi Oel · Gas · Chemie GmbH, a subsidiary of Lurgi AG, is to build the world’s largest methanol plant in Iran. The plant, which will be constructed at Bandar Assaluye on the Persian Gulf, will allow 5000 tons of methanol to be produced daily in a single train. The customer of Lurgi Oel · Gas · Chemie GmbH is Zagros Petrochemical Co., a subsidiary of the Iranian National Petrochemical Company (NPC). The contract has a value of EUR 135 million. The new plant will apply the Lurgi MegaMethanol(R) Process, developed within the last four years. The project will be designed and engineered in partnership with Pidec, an Iranian engineering contractor. Lurgi and Pidec will provide technology, basic and detail engineering, supply of all equipment and materials as well as the supervision of construction and commissioning for the methanol complex including off-sites and utilities. The project has been scheduled for completion in 2004.
