Iran’s Bidboland Gas Refining Project in Khuzestan Province, southwestern Iran, has won the International Project Management Association (IPMA)’s Global Project Excellence Award at the energy sector.
The project, which was recently awarded as the country's top mega project by the Ninth National Project Management Award, has been announced third among four final nominees for the IPMA’s 2020 Global Project Excellence Award in the energy sector, reported the refinery in its website.
According to the selection of the judges of this international competition, the megaprojects are divided and assessed in two categories of infrastructure and energy.
As the largest gas refinery project in West Asia with an investment of $3.4 billion, the Persian Gulf Bidboland project is now in operation.
Located in Behbahan County in the southwest, Bid Boland will have an annual production capacity of 10.4 million tons of methane, 1.5 million tons of ethane, one million tons of propane, 600,000 tons of gas condensates, and 500,000 tons of butane, once fully operational.
With the implementation of the project, the production capacity of Iran’s sweet and other gases will increase, which will be used to feed petrochemical plants in Mahshahr and supply urban areas in the region. Exports are also anticipated.
