Largest floating terminal to be launched by Iran
The Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC) will launch the largest floating terminal in the Arabian Gulf in Soroush oilfield after 12 years of non-stop construction work, an oil official announced.
The terminal is expected to come online within the next few weeks, said production Manager of the IOOC Mohammad Baqer Soleimani, the oil ministry’s website reported.
In July, Soleimani said the final construction works of the terminal were underway and the completed particles needed to be joined together to become operational.
“The floating terminal will be operational during the next few weeks,” said Soleimani on Sunday, September 14.
The terminal is expected to replace the Sorena terminal which is currently operating in the field.
