All the petrochemical plants in Mahshahr Petrochemical Facilities in the southwestern province of Khouzestan are operating normally despite a massive blaze that overtook Bou Ali Sina Plant’s paraxylene unit last week.
The fire was put out after three days in the wee hours of Saturday.
Managing director of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said that the plant would soon resume its production.
Bou Ali Sina Petrochemical Plant is affiliated with Iranian state-owned National Petrochemical Company (NPC). It is also a subsidiary of Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC).
Firefighting teams from Khouzestan province as well as the neighboring provinces finally extinguished the blaze on Friday and managed to prevent it from spreading to the nearby tanks of petrochemical products.
