South Korea will build small-scale liquefied natural gas (Mini-LNG) plants in Iran to meet energy needs in remote areas of the country, media reports said on June 19, 2017.
An agreement was signed in South Korea's Busan last week and the construction of the plant could begin within the next 4 years, Press TV reported on Sunday.
"We do not have the technology to develop Mini-LNG plants, but joining hands with companies like South Korea's Oceanus and KOGAS is an important step to develop our LNG sector," Xinhua quoted Pakseresht as saying.
The plan to build the plants envisages a production capacity of 15 tonnes per day, he said, adding that it could rise to as high as 300 tonnes per day at a later stage.
The South Korean companies involved in the project are Oceanus, Kitech Institute of Industrial Technology and Korea Gas Technology Company, according to the report
The Iranian parties involved are the NIGC, the LNG Institute of Tehran University and the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry.
It was announced here on June 15 that Iran's Finance Minister Ali Tayyebniya will visit Seoul soon to finalize talks over credit line of $13 billion from South Korea for Iran's several energy projects.
