Iran's National Petrochemical Company (NPC) has planned to facilitate production of 13 new petrochemical products by the end of the 6th five-year development plan to 2022.
NPC is planning to import the required technical savvy and licenses from across the globe for production of the items.
Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh has also voiced his ministry's support for expanding the industry.
NPC is currently in talks with major international energy and chemical leaders including Total, Technip, Air Liquide, BASF, Linde Group, Mitsui and Sojitz, Haldor Topsoe, etc.
Completion of propane and butane production chains is one of NPC's key strategies for diversifying petrochemical output of the country.
