The Iranian petroleum minister says the gas to polypropylene project (GTPP) whose construction work began in the west of the country is a major petrochemical project.

Bijan Namdar Zangeneh, who was present in the ground-breaking ceremony for the petrochemical facility on February 6, 2021, described the event as a “memorable” day for him.

“For years I was trying to run this project in the country because we would gain the technology of turning natural gas into valuable forms of plastic,” he said.

“The West Islamabad Petrochemical Complex is a major project worth around $600 million,” said the minister.

“It will create thousands of jobs and upgrade the technological level of the province tremendously,” he noted. 

“When the project becomes operations, Kermanshah province will get its fourth petrochemical facility and will rank third in the country as far as the capacity for the petrochemical products is concerned,” he said.
