Describing the latest status of exporting Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Mahdavi said “with the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), restrictions on Iran’s LNG industry have been fully lifted.”

“All the LNG produced at Iranian petrochemical complexes is dispatched to world markets after supplying the domestic demand,” highlighted the official asserting “accordingly, foreign LNG carriers are now allowed to enter Iranian ports and terminals.”

He stressed that production and exports of the product had turned into a major problem for the country’s petrochemical plants during sanction years while no limitations exist now on LNG exports.”

Director general of Petrochemical Employers Association recalled that a portion of the LNG is being deployed to world markets using LNG carriers purchased by Iran’s private sector while the rest is being transferred with foreign vessels; “nevertheless, certain problems still exist on providing insurance coverage for Iranian ships which carry petrochemical and polymer products.”

The first European ship for carrying petrochemical products moored at Pars Petrochemical Port in Assalouyeh on Tuesday April 12.
