Fire Extinguished at Iran’s South Pars Gas Field

A fire broke out at a propane pipeline in South Pars gas field’s phases 20 and 21, on the onshore units of the giant complex, on late Wednesday night.

Firefighters and forces from the gas field’s HSE (Health and Safety Executive) unit could extinguish the blaze after around two hours, an official said.

The South Pars gas field, whose development has been divided into 28 phases, is located in the Persian Gulf straddling the maritime border between Iran and Qatar.

One of the most serious incidents in the history of Iran’s energy industry took place in July 2016, when an inferno broke out at Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Refinery Complex in Mahshahr and raged at a giant storage tank for more than two days.
