SYRIA - Gas Processing Plants & Their Markets.
The operational capacity of Syria's gas processing plants and pipelines exceeds marketed production and consumption of this clean source of fuel. The following are brief profiles of the gas processing plants in Syria and their local markets:
The Deir ez-Zor Desgas plant, on stream since September 2001, is the largest in Syria with a capacity of 13 MCM/d. It processes almost 5 MCM/d of associated gas from a 180-km gathering system linking 22 oilfields in the north-east (see Gas Market Trends) to feed the Syrian market, plus 8 MCM/d from Total's Tabiyeh gas field before reinjection of some of the dry gas into the field's reservoir.
The plant produces LPG for the local market and 19,000 b/d of condensate for crude oil blending and export through the Banias terminal.
The plant, the gathering system and related facilities are operated by the state-owned Syrian Petroleum Co. (SPC) and Syrian Gas Co. (SGC), which in October 2005 took over from a ConocoPhillips/Total JV, whose service contract with SPC had been terminated in September (see background in Vol. 62, DT No. 10).
