13 new petchem projects to go operational by late March 2025: NPC

TEHRAN – The head of Iran’s National Petrochemical Company (NPC) has said the company is planning to complete 13 new petrochemical projects by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (late March 2025), IRNA reported.

“One of the strategies of the petrochemical industry in the year “production leap with people’s participation” is to put 12 new petrochemical projects into operation by the end of [the current Iranian calendar]1403 and use all available capacities,” Morteza Shahmirzaei said.

He stated that the completion of 12 petrochemical projects by the end of this year will have a significant impact on the growth of production and economic development of the country.

The NPC head had previously put the country’s petrochemical production capacity at over 92 million tons, and said: “Today we are almost self-sufficient in the main petrochemical sectors including products and equipment.”

Iran’s petrochemical industry accounts for 28 percent of the region’s petrochemical capacity and 2.7 percent of the world’s petrochemical capacity, he announced.

The petrochemical industry plays a crucial role in Iran’s non-oil economy, as petrochemical export is the second-largest source of revenue for the country after crude oil. Petrochemical exports already constitute nearly 33 percent of the country’s non-oil exports.

According to Shahmirzaei, the company plans to increase its annual petrochemical production capacity to 200 million tons over the next 10 years.

In this regard, Iranian Oil Minister Javad Oji said that more than 100 petrochemical projects with a total investment of about $70 billion have been defined and will be implemented across the country.

Oji noted that the country will also be completely self-sufficient in producing the catalysts used in the petrochemical industry by the end of the current government administration’s incumbency (August 2025).
