Addressing the inauguration ceremony of Kermanshah Polymer Plant in western Iran on Tuesday, Qassemi said, “A few days ago, 1000 kilometers away from here, we inaugurated two petrochemical projects in Assaluyeh including Kavian Petrochemical Plant and West Ethylene Pipeline; while today the first petrochemical plant in West of the country, which will take feedstock from Kavina Petrochemical Plant, becomes operational.”

He said under intelligent initiative of the government on construction West Ethylene Pipeline, as the longest ethylene pipeline in the world, 12 provinces of the country will take advantage of oil and gas resources deposited south of the country.

Alluding to huge volume of executive work done for construction of West Ethylene Pipeline, Qassemi noted more than 60 million cubic meters of soil removed to that end, equal to those needed for building several large dams.

Referring to petrochemical sector as a big advantage for the country and important for the government, the official said the government had paved the way for establishment of hundreds of factories and petrochemical related industries ‘and now it is the time for entrepreneurs to grasp at the golden opportunity for investment.
