TEHRAN (Shana) – The head of Iran Offshore Oil Company (IOOC) Ali Sarkahaki has said that the maintenance unit of Soroush platform in Bahregan repaired and commissioned the CS700 turbocompressor of the Parsi gas injection plant of Aghajari oil and gas production company.
Sarkahaki said: "After imposition of the sanctions, despite spending a lot of money, some Iranian companies active in designing, manufacturing and repairing turbocompressors failed to launch this item, but we were able to do this by relying on local forces and capabilities.”
He said Aghajari Oil and Gas Company bought the turbocompressor from Siemens in 2010 to expand gas injection, adding: "Siemens was not available at the time of launching these devices and a commissioning agreement was signed with one of the Iranian companies that cooperated with Siemens. But the contracting company did not have the necessary expertise and the turbocompressor failed after 870 hours of operation.”
