The construction of a petrochemicals complex on Iran’s Lavan Island would require $20 billion in investment, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported, citing an official at Iranian Offshore Oil Co.
A single petrochemicals plant on Lavan would cost $5 billion, Mahmoud Zirakchianzadeh, the company’s managing director, told the official news agency.
Iranian offshore awarded a $1.9 billion contract to Sepehr Energy Co. to develop the Lavan gas field and build a chemicals complex on the island, state-run Mehr reported yesterday.
